AllMusic Review by

Sony Special Products' Legendary Louis Armstrong is an eight track sampler of his ... well, his legendary recordings for Columbia Records. There are certainly a number of oversights in the selection, but that's the way things are with budget line collections like this. The reality is, Armstrong's catalog is so strong that it is still engaging in haphazardly assembled collections such as this. Sure, collectors and purists will have little use for this, but curious listeners on a strict budget should enjoy this disc.
