Ben Selvin is GOD..............just like Paul Whiteman was!!

"These songs by Mr. Selvin are probably the greatest examples that jazz music has given the world an in-depth listening perspective at in years!! Ben Selvin, not only being a well-respected prolific recording artist of all time, but had many numerous musicians in his bands that went on to famed success on their own ventures in the music world. Such greats include Benny Goodman, Manny Klein, and Jack Teagarden. I love the famed music cuts Selvin did especially between 1927 & 1931. They're GREAT!!!!!"

"Selvin had such as superb dance orchestra in the late 1910's and 1920's. This CD gives a great jazz overview of legendary musicians including Benny Goodman, Joe Venuti, Manny Klein (my favorite), and Gene Krupa. He should have more CD's issued of his music, of the 1920's; including some songs sung by his favorite vocalists around 1925-1928 Irving Kaufman. Mr. Kaufman had one great hit I think Ben Selvin fans really like, recorded around May, 1926, being the song "Miss Annabelle Lee." I hope in the near future, that music historians should release more of his songs, either on CD labels such as Rhino Classics, BMG, RCA/Victor, or even a Volume III issue following these two wonderful collections of Ben Selvin -- the most prolific bandleader-recording artist of all time."
Great release from Old Masters

"Ben Selvin is essential to any twenties/thirties collection and the Old Masters (Thanks, OM!) has released wonderfully remastered cds (both vol. 1 and 2 are excellent). I started collecting twenties music in order to get a few songs I was familiar with. The more I was exposed to, the more I realized what a fantastic period of music it was. Now that rock is pretty much on life support, check out another era when the focus was on great musicianship and a strong beat - a time when you needed talent not software and a beat machine to make it in the business."
