All Music Guide - Stephen Cook
Ace's Women, Whiskey & Fish Tails spotlights some of the famous blues-shouter's latter-day work 1952-1957 for independent R&B label King.

The Ace titles are best left to listeners looking for a second roundup, while newcomers probably will want to first check out survey discs on Rhino or the chronologically minded Classics label for more of Harris' essential early hits and sides "Good Rockin' Tonight".
