AllMusic Review by

Ain't It the Truth is no less than the third reissue since 1997 of the same generic collection of tracks from 1939-1946. As such, there is little to no information about the various personnel except in the case of soloists -- Helen Humes sings two songs, Thelma Carpenter sings one, and Lester Young makes a killer appearance on "Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie."
