AllMusic Review by

This superior LP from British MCA has the final six recordings by the Boswell Sisters and 14 selections by Connee Boswell from the 1936-40 period after the group broke up. While the Boswell sides are a bit tame by their standards, Connee Boswell sounds at her very best on such solo numbers as "Yes Indeed," "Martha," "Mama Don't Allow It" and a swinging version of "Home On the Range." Her supporting cast includes the Ben Pollack big band, Bob Crosby's Bob Cats and several orchestras; a special bonus are two vocal duets with Bing Crosby. This out-of-print collection is thus far the definitive Connee Boswell album.
