AllMusic Review by

This two-album set, which, despite the title, contains recordings made between 1924 and 1932, is out of print, but that's the only reason it is denied the highest possible recommedation. Containing 29 tracks, it traces Armstrong's evolution from sideman to his Hot Fives and Hot Sevens and is the best one-album look at his early years.
