There have been a few anthologies on the work of Bull Moose Jackson in the CD era but very few have covered all of the stylistic bases that this hugely popular saxophonist and singer enjoyed success with. Here are 28 examples of his recorded work, blues, romantic ballads and jump blues all performed with equal aplomb.

Perhaps best known for his raucous double-entendre classics like "I Want A Bowlegged Woman" or "Big Ten Inch Record" it was actually hits like "I Love You Yes I Do" and "I Can't Go On Without You", written by the great Henry Glover that topped the R&B charts and made him a superstar in the African-American community.

Along with the aforementioned chart successes Bull Moose had many more hits such as "I Know Who Threw the Whiskey (In The Well), "All I Want is You", "Little Girl Don't Cry" which are included on this set along with many more superb tracks.
