AllMusic Review by

The CD compilation is a superb every-record-in-chronological-order memorial of the early days of clarinetist/bandleader Stellio, the greatest name in biguine. Both are indispensable to any Caribbean collection, even if you have the Music Memoria CDs with which they inevitably overlap (there's only one overlap between these two, and in fact the Stellio tracks in the general collection amplify the individual compilation). The notes are masterly (great photos too) and the technical quality remarkable.
