AllMusic Review by

This LP features obscure acoustic jazz from Perley Breed's Shepard Colonial Orchestra (which has Brad Gowans on clarinet), Richard Hitter's Blue Knights and Jimmy Joy's Orchestra. One can really feel the influence of The New Orleans Rhythm Kings and the Wolverines on some of these long-forgotten performances, which were put out in the late-'70s by the collectors' label Harrison. Worth picking up (if it can be found) by fans of 1920s jazz.
