AllMusic Review by

Tucker was one of the many lightweight, "Mickey Mouse" bands that prospered during the big-band era, and this 24-track set highlights the best the group had to offer. Its biggest hit, "Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh!," was with the girl singer in the band, "Wee" Bonnie Baker, and the band blew in tune on "Oh, Lady Be Good," although Tucker could never be considered a serious swing outfit. A nice collection of lightweight pop tunes, expertly played.
