When I purchased this CD, I really didn't know what fun I was in for. Two wonderful discs totalling 49 songs, all ranging from 1928-1944. Every song a treat, performed and recorded beautifully.

Highlights of the first disc include "Singapore Sorrows" (a bluesy fox-trot that really shows off the sax and muted trumpet), "Cryin' for the Carolines" (a sweet little rarity), "The Peanut Vendor" (guaranteed to set your toes tapping), and "Lazybones". Among the second disc's notable tracks are "Home" (a charmer that just sums up the sound of the early 1930's), "Hick Stomp" (a nice segway into the swing era), "Champagne Cocktail" (with a rhythm that never lets up), "Bwanga" and "Lili Marlene" (okay, it doesn't touch Dietrich's rendition, but it's darned good, anyhow). The real standout? Without question, "Message from Mars" - seriously hot stuff.

If you, like me, are a fan of the Living Era/Sanctuary Records releases of period recordings, this album won't disappoint. All songs here are heard as they should be, in original mono form. A truly enjoyable collection.

If I rate the Avid 2-Cd set as the best compilation of Ambrose available, this one runs it a close second. The time span is ten years wider (1928-1944), enabling us to hear more of the classic early sides featuring Sylvester Ahola. There's a judicious mix of instrumental and vocal tracks, and amongst the latter is one of the two recordings which Connee Boswell made in London under her own name with Ambrose. Every one of the 49 tracks deserves its place here, and excellent remastering and very full discographical details makes this another "must have".

Ambrose's orchestra was a popular British band that spanned the late twenties through the swing forties. This is an excellent transfer with great sound.
