AllMusic Review by

This is a hilariously bad LP. Pete Fountain's Dixieland group alternates (often chorus by chorus) with pianist Big Tiny Little's very corny honky tonk band, really tearing apart (quite unintentionally) a dozen veteran standards. Add to the general bedlam quite a few sound effects and the results are remarkable: music to offend everyone. Also quite humorous are Leonard Feather's liner notes which attempt to justify this nonsense.
