AllMusic Review by

(same as Cornographic 1001) This compilation of airchecks made during World War II before live audiences is representative of Spike Jones & The City Slickers except that few of their hits are present, other than "Red Wing." The Nillsen Twins sing 'People Will Say We're In Love" straight in spite of all the instrumental antics going on behind them, while Del Porter and Carl Grayson have several vocal features apiece and Red Ingle is a master of perfectly timed sneezes and comedy. The surface noise is minimal and the fidelity is decent, so this is one of the better wartime collections to appear on vinyl.
