AllMusic Review by

Cornetist Red Nichols' final record was this obscure effort which, as with all of his Capitol LPs, has not been reissued on CD. Nichols and the last version of his Five Pennies perform brief renditions of 11 rags and blues with a couple of Dixieland standards (including "Milenberg Joys") tossed in. None of the music on this final effort is particularly memorable but it is pleasing overall and serves as a good ending to Nichols' 40 years on record.
