AllMusic Review by

The Pied Pipers' tenure with Tommy Dorsey's swing band is fondly recalled on Whatcha Know Joe, an excellent 21-track compilation capturing the group's biggest war-era hits. Although Jo Stafford is spotlighted on songs including "Embraceable You" and "The Night We Called It a Day," even more noteworthy are four tracks featuring Frank Sinatra ("Dolores," "I'll Take Tallulah," "You Might Have Belonged to Another" and "Let's Get Away from It All," the latter two duets with Connie Haines).
