"While I agree in general with the other reviewer, this recording deserves a closer look simply because of Edison's solo work. Granted, Edison is hampered here by the backing of some lethargic strings and some uninspired arrangements but his virtuosity is exemplary even in this contrived setting. For the true Sweets Edison enthusiast, there is plenty of the blues-ridden obligato work that defined his style. You just have to tune out the schmaltzy undercurrent. Not his best effort but it shouldn't be altogether dismissed."
