AllMusic Review by

This 23-track compilation contains alternate takes of many of Armstrong's signature songs from this period on one album. The songs include "Stomp Off, Let's Go!," "S'posin'," "Ain't Misbehavin'," and many more in mildly altered form. Armstrong is almost consistently good, and any fan of his work would probably enjoy this collection.
