By 1941 Will Bradley's Orchestra was at the height of its popularity. However the recordings on this seventh of nine Ajax Lp's (which reissue virtually the complete Will Bradley) contain an excess of so-so period vocals. The best selections are "From The Land Of The Sky-Blue Waters," "All That Meat And No Potatoes," "Booglie Wooglie Piggy" and the small-group dixieland romp on "Basin Street Boogie." Otherwise the forgotten singers Terry Allen and Lynne Gardner dominate the music, making this collection a lesser effort mostly for completists.
