AllMusic Review by

By 1969 veteran bandleader and rhythm guitarist Eddie Condon was only performing on a sporadic basis. This LP features his band of the era (cornetist Wild Bill Davison, trombonist George Brunies, clarinetist Tommy Gwaltney, pianist John Eaton, bassist Bill Goodall and drummer Cliff Leeman) playing a variety of Dixieland standards and a four-song ballad medley. The spontaneous concert performances are a bit loose at times (particularly by the later cuts) and there is a lot of joking around but Condon collectors will want this spirited release.
