AllMusic Review by

This Collectables reissue assembles 24 tracks by the Harry James Orchestra recorded for the Columbia and Brunswick labels between 1938-1952. Swingtown has an edge over the usual best-of collections by going deeper into the trumpeter/bandleader's catalog and coming up with quality material, including Benny Goodman's "Lullaby in Rhythm," "All the Way," "Comes Love," and "I Still Get Jealous."
