AllMusic Review by

This somewhat random sampling of the recordings of violinist Joe Venuti and guitarist Eddie Lang contains a variety of gems but will at least partly duplicate most other Venuti collections from the era. Common selections alternate with rarities (such as Red McKenzie's "My Baby Came Home"). In addition to numbers from Venuti and Lang sessions, there are selections taken from dates led by Red Nichols, Frankie Trumbauer ("Krazy Kat" which also has a short solo from Bix Beiderbecke) and Lang. Robert Parker's inventive engineering gives these selections a slight echo and the feel of stereo; collectors vary as to their liking of his methods.
