Description by OLDIES.com:
Texan singer/songwriter Bruce Channel had one of the biggest hits of the early '60s with "Hey! Baby!" which rose all the way to number one on the Pop charts in 1962. The harmonica intro was revolutionary at the time and is said to have influenced The Beatles, particularly with their "Love Me Do." Channel recorded frequently and was also a dynamic live performer; you'll hear the best of his work in this collection.

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
There are few sounds in rock & roll as plaintive as Delbert McClinton's opening harmonica riff on "Hey! Baby," with the possible exception of Bruce Channel's vocal, which soon takes over. Channel is poised on the edge of a romantic encounter throughout the song, but given the underlying tone of bittersweetness, you can't help but think he's on his way to Heartbreak Hotel. This notion is certainly borne out elsewhere, as on the girl-group torch song "Baby It's You" and the deceptively uptempo lonesome-blues lament "Ain't Got No Home" made famous by Clarence "Frogman" Henry. Even when Channel closes the album with the everything's-cool declaration of the bonus track "Mine Exclusively," there's that forlorn harmonica wail again, bringing out the lonely tinge in a voice that was clearly born for the blues.
