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.

This is a consummate collection of Charlie Barnet recordings which any big band era fan will enjoy. Barnett was a major bandleader of the era and composed some top hits later covered by others. One of the first to integrate his band, he preferred a wilder style of big band music which you will find in this collection

I first heard Charlie Barnet's music in a George Pal Puppettoon. His music and it's syncopation astounds especially in "Cherokee" and "Redskin Rhumba", which aren't the most politically correct titles, but the music is great.

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.
