AllMusic Review by

This collector's Lp has some real rarities, radio transcriptions featuring the Boswell Sisters. While side one is comprised of six obscure numbers from 1931 that feature the Boswells accompanied by just Martha Boswell's piano, side two is mostly from 1936 (shortly before Martha and Vet permanently retired) and uses orchestral accompaniment. Although their studio recordings are recommended to general collectors first, these rare performances will delight Boswell Sisters fans. Highlights include "Poor Little Cinderella Brown," "Livin' In The Sunlight, Lovin' In The Moonlight," "Cheek To Cheek," "I'll Never Say 'Never Again' Again" and two versions of "Dinah."
