AllMusic Review by John Bush

The Waltz King & the Vocal King, Wayne King and Buddy Clark, are the features of this Collectors' Choice compilation. Thanks to the good people at Luxor Cosmetics, this 1941 show was broadcast, alternating (roughly) waltz selections from King with a few dewy-eyed vocals by Clark. The sound isn't terrible by standards of the day, but the sound is generally dusty, the selections undistinguished by anything more than the announcer introducing each song. Highlights include Clark's "I Look at You" and "Number Ten Lullaby Lane."
