AllMusic Review by

On the third of three LPs put out by Arcadia, there are two surprisingly hot numbers from an early edition of Lawrence Welk's Orchestra ("Spiked Beer" and "Doin' the New Lowdown") and jazz-oriented performances from a variety of obscure late-'20s groups including Bernie Schultz's Crescent Orchestra, the Cotton Pickers, Berlyn Baylor, Dick Kent, Joe Ward, Roy Wilson and Jack Davies's Kentuckians. None of the sidemen (except trumpeter Jack Purvis) went on to much, but this music should delight fans of the era.
