AllMusic Review by

This collector's Lp has a crossection of recordings by the Boswell Sisters. Although the programming is not in strictly chrnological order (and the personnel is inexcusably not given), the music is consistently wonderful. One of the few great jazz vocal groups, the Boswell Sisters are heard (with backup from the Dorsey Brothers and trumpeter Bunny Berigan on some tracks) at their best on "Dinah," "Forty-Second Street," "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Heebies Jeebies"; in addition, Connie Boswell is showcased on two solo numbers including a definitive "All I Do Is Dream Of You."
