AllMusic Review by

For this LP from Harrison's very valuable series of early jazz and hot dance music albums, such obscure bands as Adrian Schubert's Salon Orchestra, Jack Linx's Society Serenaders, Mendello's Dance Orchestra, Johnny Clesi's Areoleans, Oreste's Queensland Orchestra and Arnold Johnson's Paramount Hotel Orchestra are heard playing hot dance music and jazz standards from the late '20s. The sidemen are primarily studio musicians although Clesi's two numbers feature cornetist Red Nichols and trombonist Miff Mole. This is a valuable (if difficult-to-locate) acquisition for connoisseurs of 1920s jazz.
