Of Harrison's two dozen or so LPs that include hot dance band and jazz recordings from the mid-'20s to mid-'30s, this is one of the better ones (although collectors of the era's music will want all of the increasingly hard-to-find albums). "Four Four Rhythm" by Paul Tremaine's Aristocrats is a classic and the album also has four fine numbers from Ina Ray Hutton's all-female orchestra of 1934. In addition there are real rarities from Everett Hoagland, Roane's Pennsylvanians, Cline's Collegians and Tal Henry, long forgotten but worthy performances.
