This 18-song compilation is a good compromise for anyone who doesn't want to spend $100 on the Bear Family The Lin & Kliff Story box. The music, by David Ray ("Jitterbugging Baby," "Lonesome Baby Blues"), Steve Wright ("Wild, Wild Woman," "Far and Distant Lands"), the Chuck-a-Lucks ("Disc Jockey Fever"), Buck Griffin ("Pretty Lou"), Andy Starr ("Dirty Bird Song," "Lover Man," "Do It Right"), the Jokers ("Dogfight"), Don Terry ("Knees Shakin'"), et. al, almost all rocks hard and fast, with hardly any let-up (apart from "Far and Distant Lands" and "Lover Man") in the pacing. And this is the easiest way for the curious to discover uncanny Buddy Holly soundalike Ray Ruff ("I Took a Liking to You"), who came to Lin Records after leaving Holly's former producer, Norman Petty. One minor drawback is the sound, which is decent but not remotely as impressive as the Bear Family material, and the notes, which are sketchy about most of the talent represented here. ~ Bruce Eder
