Singer Milton Brown was one of the founders of western swing, actually predating Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys slightly. A complete set of all of Brown's recordings have been released, but this 10" Decca LP (reissued by the Mutual Music Corporation in the mid-1980s) is a fine best-of set. Unfortunately the personnel and dates are not given, but the eight numbers are all quite fun. Among the highlights are "St. Louis Blues," "Sweet Jennie Lee," "Brownie Special," and "Right or Wrong."
