Breaking down Elmore's Fire and Enjoy sessions into separate volumes makes sense for the casual fan who doesn't want to pop for the complete box set, available in two different configurations from Collectables and Capricorn. This first entry collects up 13 solid examples of Elmore's work for Bobby Robinson's labels, with "The Sky Is Crying," "Rollin' & Tumblin'," "Done Somebody Wrong," "Bobby's Rock," and "Baby Please Set a Date" being the notable tracks aboard.
