AllMusic Review by

Kenny Ball's follow-up album to Midnight in Moscow did not result in any new pop hits but the results do contain a great deal of joyous Dixieland. Trumpeter Ball (who is also a fine singer) formed an excellent frontline with trombonist John Bennett and clarinetist Dave Jones as can be heard on a diverse set highlighted by "Cornet Chop Suey," "Potato Head Blues," "I Shall Not Be Moved," "The Green Leaves of Summer" and a tune called "My Old Man Said Follow the Van."
