Editorial Reviews

The track listing says it all, simply 48 of the original, and greatest, Big Band recordings from that era, over two and a half hours of music on a 2CD set. Expect plenty of exposure for this great value compilation in the U.S. on syndicated radio via the 'Don Kennedy Show' and 'Big Band Jump'

All the best of the best original artists. Brings back a lot of memories. Sound and selection not to be equaled. No need of another collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you all reet? June 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Whaddya say gate?

This is one hep swinging double cd set!
Put on your zoot suit, slick your hair back, bust your conk on this mess and swing out Jack!

The Big Bands are wonderfully represented on this set, everything from Tommy Dorsey, Glen Miller, The Andrews Sisters, Harry James, and many many more. The quality is good but I'm weird that way, I actually enjoy the old sound and too much "remastering" takes away from the overall sound...

You will NOT be disappointed with this set!!

Its solid swing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Big Band Collection April 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not one of my favorite CD'-some of the music selections are too much alike; the songs could have been arranged better to provide more variety. On the other hand; some real "classics" you don't hear very often. Not a bad CD-just not great!

I bought this for my Dad as that's the music he grew up with and liked to dance to. Just few too many pieces he didn't know but otherwise very much appreciated.
