AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

The Alternative Takes series is of immense value to consumers of the "French Classics" CD series. These are alternate takes in chronological order of historic jazz (and some blues) with a strong representation of the swing era. The Alternate Takes: 1929-47 contains 24 Lionel Hampton tracks on a single disc including "Shuffin' at the Hollywood," "Dinah," "How High the Moon," "Flying Home," and two takes of "Overnight Blues." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
