Dr Ross - the Harmonica Boss - was a one man band playing harmonica, acoustic guitar, bass drum and high-hat simultaneously. Originally he just played harp and one story says that he got his name because he carried his harmonicas in a doctor's bag. Alternatively the epithet 'Doctor' was often given to accomplished musicians. His composition "Cat Squirrel" was covered by Cream.

This disc was his first full LP (recorded 1965) although he had recorded individual sides for labels like Sun and Chess in the early 1950s.

This LP was another Testament disc (Testament 2206) licensed by Elektra UK.
