AllMusic Review by

This English LP features three different versions of The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra heard in radio performances: his mid-'40s unit, the new big band he reorganized in 1947, and the unit he led the following year that never recorded commercially due to the recording strike. With trumpeter Charlie Shavers, tenorman Don Lodice and drummer Louis Bellson among the stars, these are good example of Dorsey's postwar music, a period of time when the swing he continued to play with enthusiasm was slipping permanently behind the times.
