AllMusic Review by

This is the third and final volume of LPs chronicling the 51 songs recorded by the Benny Goodman orchestra for radio transcriptions in one day. This set includes interesting versions of "King Porter Stomp" and "Sometimes I'm Happy" performed less than a month before the hit studio renditions, and captures the King of Swing only a short time before he unexpectedly became a household name.
