Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Adams

Pick Me Up on Your Way Down is a five-disc box set that collects Walker's complete recordings from his earliest, tentative efforts for Imperial through the end of his tenure with Epic in the late '60s.

His early recordings were sometimes sung uncertainly, but Walker improved with age to the point where the last recordings on this box set are some of the best.
