5.0 out of 5 stars Early gems from the Sage of Tippo 3 Nov 2010
By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Mose Allison is one of a kind; a hip, smart, and ice-cool performer, witty lyricist and one of the Good Guys. He seems to have been around forever - his latest album came out early 2010, and it's pretty fine too. This top value double CD features material from the very dawn of Mose's solo recording career, covering material released on Prestige and Columbia, 1957-1960. One disc is all vocals, the other disc all instrumental, excpet for a couple of vocals which are parts of song cycles. It's got early classics, such as 'Young Man Blues', as covered by The Who, 'Parchman Farm' as covered by John Mayall & The Blues breakers, and his own great versions of songs by Willie Dixon, Duke Ellington and Ray Charles. At 8 measly quid or cheaper, it's an absolute snip, good singing, great playing and a handy primer to Mose-world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leicester Bangs Review (2010): 22 Dec 2010
By Leicester Bangs TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Mose Allison - The Collection (Retro World / Evangeline)
An excellent double disc collection which concentrates on Mose Allison's late `50s output, with disc 1 focusing on his songs, and incidentally providing much of the template for the British blues and pop boom of the mid-`60s, and the second disc drawing attention to his jazzier instrumental material.

Fans of Van Morrison, Georgie Fame, Chris Farlowe and The Who will find much of the disc absolutely fascinating, especially the original versions of "Parchman Farm" (Fame, Clapton, etc.) and "Young Man's Blues" (The Who). Excellent value, and a very welcome introduction to Mose Allison' classic period. 9/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mose Allison 13 Feb 2011
It's Mose Allison so of course it's hard to fault - my only moan (a small one) is that a lot the tracks are "dinner jazz" style i.e. very slow and croony - I just personally prefer the more upbeat stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and Easy 8 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
This album is a really cool collection of all that is best in what I would call modern swing jazz. Great to listen to and even work out to. It's an album that grabs you that little bit more with each listen. It's not X-Factor but then that makes it even more attractive.
