Mose Allison had already established himself as a unique jazz voice with his early Prestige albums of Back Country Suite and Local Color (from which this package comes) when the new generation of rock/blues devotees discovered him all over again as Pete Townshend of The Who explains in his notes.

*#1-15 originally released as Back Country Suite (Prestige 7091); #16-25 as Local Color (Prestige 7121).
