AllMusic Review by

The 20 songs that make up Session 55: 1936-2000 are re-recorded favorites associated over the years with Les Brown and his Band of Renown. Vocalist Lou Rawls and the band, led by Brown's son Les Brown Jr., recreate pop standards including "I'm Forever Blowin' Bubbles," "Ain't She Sweet," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "That Old Black Magic," "Ol' Man River," and "Leap Frog." This Doc Hollywood release not only provides a fresh look at these classics, thanks in part to Rawls contribution, but also pays tribute to Brown's 65 years of performing.
