AllMusic Review by

The post-Berigan era found Dorsey heading one of the most popular of all big bands, rivaling Benny Goodman's. This fourth of eight LP two-fers has all of his recordings cut during a three-month period, including 15 selections by Dorsey's Clambake Seven (which was now featuring trumpeter Pee Wee Erwin, Bud Freeman's tenor and clarinetist Johnny Mince in addition to singer Edythe Wright) and a variety of big-band titles, most memorably "Satan Takes a Holiday," "Beale Street Blues" and a truly bizarre version of "Am I Dreaming?"
