AllMusic Review by

The 1957 Les Brown Orchestra is featured on this Hindsight CD which is comprised of concise (all but one of the 22 numbers are under three minutes) radio transcriptions. Brown always had a first-class dance band but none of the soloists are particularly distinctive. Best is singer Jo Ann Greer who always had a pleasing style, but this set is not too essential.
