Collectables' Very Best Of Lucky Millinder is slightly inferior compared to the chronological volumes on the Classics label as it lacks any recognizable hits. Still, this is an enjoyable collection highlighting 24 tracks recorded for the King label in the '50s, including "Silent George," "Who Said Shorty Wasn't Coming Back," "Mr. Trumpet Man," "Ow!," and "I'm Waiting Just for You." Unfortunately, Millinder's only other R&B charted hit of the era, "I'll Never Be Free" has been omitted here.
