Some of the earliest work ever recorded by the mighty Roy Head – the Texas rocker whose work also had a good deal of early soul and R&B! Although Texas could boast a fair bit of gritty music at the time, Roy's work was even grittier than most – with an uptight, all right edge that never let up – and which clearly seemed to draw a big part of its inspiration from work from northern labels like Chess
, King, and even early Motown. The package is a bit short on dates and notes on the recordings – typical for the Fuel label – but most of the cuts here seem to come from Roy's initial years recording with Bob Tanner's TNT label, plus work from a few years later cut with Crazy Cajun Huey P Meux! CD features 18 tracks in all – including "One More Time", "Don't Be Blue", "Live It Up", "Yes I Do", "My Baby's Fine", "Here I Am In Love Again", "Summertime Love", "Woe Woe", "Walking All Day", "Talkin About A Cow", "Get Back", "Money", "The Feeling Is Gone", and "Boogie Down Sunset".
