CD Reviews

Big Band Swing 50's Style by Master Arranger
uncle freddy (ed46bigbandfreddy@ear | Cleveland, Ohio | 05/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This double lp on a CD from the Capitol vaults in England sounds great and beats any compilation of Billy's material slowly being released stateside. That classic sax choir slurp, the punched up brass, and a driving rhythm section are revealed thanks to a fine digital transfer of a well kept master. Mostly uptempo and a few ballads will only wet your appetite for more of the marvelous Mr. May!"
BILLY MAY BOFFO!!!

"Wow!! This is cutting edge mono! I was tempted to give this only 4 stars because it is MONO... I just can't! It's to good. Naughty Operetta was laid down in '55 while Fancy Dancing was from '57, just a few months before stereo...it does not matter...it's that good...one of the best big band mono recordings I've heard...As VARIETY would say,!"
