AllMusic Review by

This Collectables reissue combines two similar Les Brown dates originally released on Columbia Records in the early '60s, Lerner and Loewe Bandbook and Richard Rodgers Bandbook. The big band leader provides 24 elegant renditions of classic American popular music, including "I Could Have Danced All Night," "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face," "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," "My Funny Valentine," and "Lady Is a Tramp." Although not essential, this is a respectable two-fer that traditional pop fans should be aware of.
