AllMusic Review by

This generous Lp has 20 performances (an hour of music) featuring the Boswell Sisters (the premiere jazz vocal group) in their early days. All of the Boswells' first recordings (except for six titles) are on this definitive release including their two rare numbers from 1925 when they were teenagers. Highlights include "It's the Girl," "Heebies Jeebies," "Roll On Mississippi, Roll On," "Shine On, Harvest Moon" and "Shout, Sister, Shout."
