"Despite its title, a very smart blues side, with a highly sophisticated arrangement by Jacobs. Latter, in dramatic style, highlights the appeal of the rockabilly. Unusual programming for jocks." Billboard, Apr. 20, 1957.

Hayden Thompson also recorded this for Sun. Sometimes, the Thompson recording was wrongly credited to Roy Orbison.
