AllMusic Review by

This budget LP contains two radio airchecks of the Count Basie orchestra, from June 30 and November 3, 1937. Several of these titles were not recorded commercially by Basie, making this a valuable set for veteran collectors. Jimmy Rushing fares well on his five vocals while Lester Young and Buck Clayton star. However there is no listing of personnel or recording dates on the LP itself, inexcusable omissions.
