Issued as part of RCA's Vintage series in 1967, this LP does a fine job of summing up the legacy of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band. Included are ten of their early recordings (dating from 1917-20) which are highlighted by their hit "Livery Stable Blues," "Tiger Rag," "Sensation Rag" and "Margie." In addition, the six titles that The ODJB cut for their 1936 reunion (which are in the same melodic all-ensemble style of their early days) round out this rewarding LP. All of the earlier selections have since been reissued on CD.
