AllMusic Review by

The second of six Hindsight LPs of Harry James radio transcriptions covers the same period as the first. A special treat of the set is that Helen Ward has four vocals. In addition to the leader/trumpeter (who is in excellent form) there are features for clarinetist Eddie Rosa ("Exactly like You") and pianist Arnold Ross ("How High the Moon") and solo space for altoist Willie Smith and tenorman Corky Corcoran. An excellent set with some of the more memorable numbers including "Blue Turning Grey over You," "G-Flat Special," "Blue Lou" and "I've Found a New Baby."
