After finally getting free from King Records, Moon went on to record for Decca and Coral Records during the heart of the rock 'n' roll era, and that's the part of Moon's story we're telling here. He re-cut some of his big hits, like wie Pipeliner Blues, Sweeter Than The Flowers and I'll Sail My Ship Alone. He also cut a lot of great new songs, including Jennie Lee, Sweet Rockin' Music, Early Morning Blues, Colinda, and Cush-Cush, Ky Yay.

Moon's producers' attempts to make him a Bill Haley continued with tracks like "Moon's rock", which Moon delivers in a manner that demonstrates his superiority to Haley.However,the true gems in this collection are country/honky tonk ballads like "Mr Tears","Just to be with you" or "I'll pour the wine",jazzy songs like "Waiting for ships that never come in" or "I don't know why" and especially the blues (Moon's forte) "Early morning blues" and "My baby's gone",and "Pipeliner blues".
Moon's vocal versatility is to the fore here and Moon sings blues,jazz,country,hybrids and swing as they should be done.Moon is certainly arguably one of,if not the,most versatile artists to record under the country bastion.His music belongs to a time when country music was one of the most amazing and exciting genres.Also,Moon makes the boundaries and barriers between blues,jazz and country seem nonexistant.
Coral/Decca gave Mullican the best sound engineering he ever enjoyed (many tracks are genuine early Bradley's Barn stereo), and he happily recuts "I'll sail my ship alone" and "Pipeliner blues" and covers "I don't know why" and "You don't have to be a baby to cry." It's a great tracklist, augmented with new discoveries such as "Sweet rockin' music" (which resolutely fails to rock) and "I'm waiting for ships that never come in." Best of all, however, is Mullican's swamp set ("Cush cush ky-yay," "La colinda" and the marvelous "Cajun coffee song"). These tracks are pure, authentic Mullican at his bayou best.
Because of the better-quality engineering this is a fine supplement to Mullican's starter sets drawn from his rougher-sounding King and Starday sides. Mullican followers should also rock digitally with the 2009 tribute album AMERICAN SHADOWS by the Cornell Hurd Band. Hurd and distinguished South Austin guests cover the gritty Mullican vocals on the core hits and some rarities, and Moon's uniquely influential pianism is expertly channeled by his artistic legatee Floyd Domino.
