AllMusic Review by

The 12 tracks on this budget compilation are unidentified, but a listen and an examination of the titles suggests that they are drawn from the Ink Spots' initial recordings for RCA Victor and Decca from 1935 to 1937, long before they broke through to commercial success with "If I Didn't Care" in 1939. They are more jazz-oriented on tracks like "Christopher Columbus" and "Stompin' At The Savoy," though they also borrow from Fred Astaire's repertoire for "Slap That Bass" and "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off." None of their hits is included, but these are interesting early recordings.
