This is probably the best Amos Milburn collection currently available. The addition of this set fills a pre-Rock 'n' Roll R&B void in my personal collection. Amos Milburn is one of the important bridges between Blues, Boogie-Woogie, R&B and early Rock. I'm very pleased with the music, the selections, and the packaging of this 2-CD set. I'm mostly pleased with sound quality of the set, but some cuts do come with some pops and clicks. Given the age of this music (recorded during the late '40s and early '50s) when most "race music" of this period was relegated to independent labels and not given the optimum engineering priorities afforded the major pop labels, the sound is quite good. I believe the UK's Proper Records used the best sources available to master these recordings (some not available in the U.S. in any format in years), so I tolerate the inherent hiss and other ocassional surface noises with the music. I give 5 stars for the completeness and packaging of this set. Casual listeners may find some of the selections over the 2 CDs a bit repetitive and maybe overkill, but serious fans like myself will enjoy the breadth of the overview that a single disc can't cover.

Amos Milburn is a boogie woogie legend. He also deserves credit as being a real founding father of rock n' roll. This double cd set is a good buy. The reason I gave this one a 4 instead of a 5 rating is because there are a few tedious straight blues numbers, only suitable for a real collector of period material. "Birmingham Bounce" is a hard rocker and make this cd worth getting alone, but you'll also find the ones that made him famous like "Down The Road a Piece" (covered by chuck Berry) and "Chicken Shack Boogie". This set's "better than chicken fried in bacon grease".

This CD is a must for anyone who loves boogie-woogie, blues, early r'n'b piano and also truly great talent. Which is what Amos Milburn was, a great, great talent. This is very likely the best CD available on Amos Milburn's music. His piano playing and especially his voice was extremely smooth and cool. But he could rock with the best of them. "Chicken Shack Boogie" and "Down the Road Apiece" are great examples. I highly recommend this collection.
