The late, too often underrated Mel MacDaniel would be flattered to see his songs featured on a jazz blog today. Alas, the title track of the compilation, as well as "Stand Up", "Let It Rock" and "Big Ole Brew" are re-recordings, not the original recordings of his 80's hits - kind of a disappointment when it comes to this otherless flawless compilation.
