Nice selection of Barnet instrumentals from the mid-30s to the miid-50s. In particular, it contains almost all of the "best" stuff from the 1939 band before Billy May left to join Glenn Miller. Well worth the budget price.

Mighty disappointing, even if this album did amount to a Charlie Barnet antholody. The first disc is loaded with sappy love ballads, none of which was readily identifiable as to title. Finally, disc four opened with an early version of Comanche War Dance, which failed to feature Cliff Leeman's 64-bar opening drum break. My suggestion is that this work of combined art and non-artistic slop be tossed into the trash bin.
