The compiler tends to emphasize the similarities in Rodgers' musical performances by twice ending one track and beginning the next with the same yodel ("Memphis Yodel" into "Blue Yodel No. 4 [California Blues]" on side one, "My Rough and Rowdy Ways" into "Blue Yodel No. 7 [Anniversary Blue Yodel]" on side two).

Some musical variation is provided in the inclusion of songs featuring a jazz group to open each side, "Jimmie's Mean Mamma Blues" and "Waiting for a Train." The last is one of Rodgers' better-known songs, but this is not a best-of collection so much as a thematic one.
