Acrobat Music & Media has a series related to individual artists and some year-by-year multi-artist compilations called Jukebox Hits, my initial experience with which was the Lucky Millinder 1942-1951 volume. That led to the purchase of those dealing with The Clovers (1949-1955), Erskine Hawkins (1940-1950), Ivory Joe Hunter (1945-1950), T-Bone Walker (1943-1952), Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five (1942-1947), Andy Kirk & His Clouds Of Joy (1936-1949), Joe Liggins & His "Honeydrippers" (1945-1951), The Johnny Otis Orchestra (1946-1954), Jimmie Lunceford (1935-1947) and Lionel Hampton (1943-1950)

I have also found these in the series: Roy Milton, Amos Milburn, Wynonie Harris, Cab Calloway, The Dominoes, Ella Fitzgerald, Ruth Brown, Count Basie, Muddy Waters, Billy Eckstine, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday and Nat "King" Cole, and multi-artist year compilations for 1942 to 1944, 1947, 1953 and 1955. I'm sure there are probably others.

They also only provide one of the B-sides of those Decca hits and, unlike most others in the series, the discography of the contents provides no label details at all. However, the sound quality is decent, and you get no less than 10 pages of background notes written in August 2003 by Dave Penny.

Buddy, who was born Woodrow Wilson Johnson on January 10, 1915 in Darlington, South Carolina, is rightly described in those liner notes as "one of the most under-rated of the swing band leaders of the 1940s ...

Buddy Johnson, along with his sister Ella, made some of the greatest popular music of the 40's. He is much more than "Since I Fell for You."

I absolutely love this disc. I had been searching for the song "Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit that Ball" and BINGO . . . here you go!

I love ths CD. It adds much to my expanding collection of R&B music from the 1940's. I particularly appreciate the track "DID YOU SEE JACKIE ROBINSON HIT THAT BALL".
