All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Bear Family does its usual astonishingly thorough job on this double-CD compilation, which has no less than 59 tracks recorded by both incarnations of the Davis Sisters between 1952 and 1956 as well as a brief 1957 Skeeter Davis solo take on "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels."

The fidelity isn't always stellar on the non-RCA tracks, but most of the material is strong, and the harmonies always affecting, whether on the sad ballads, spirituals, or the occasional proto-rockabilly outings "Rock-A-Bye Boogie," "Rag Mop," "Gotta Git A-Goin'". While Skeeter understandably bemoaned the loss of original partner Betty Jack Davis, the sides with her replacement Georgie Davis which actually comprise over half the package are on about the same level as the earlier ones. Chet Atkins' guitar can be heard on most of the tracks.
