"The wonderfully musical Les Brown Band is done an injustice on this release, all derived from Columbia 78 RPM records. The audio can't compare with the Columbia tracks issued from their studio master tapes & or wax masters. Every track has been issued on CD before except for HIGH ON A WINDY TRUMPET. Vocalists except for Doris Day tracks are unidentified, Betty Bonney, Jack Haskel& Ralph Young, Butch Stone & featured trumpeter Jimmy Zito go un-named. I believe this is a CD as all selections are 50 + years of age!"
Superb audio..derived from wonderful 78 RPM discs, thank God

"Thank God the producers of this cd didn't decide to burry the recordings in reverb and echo, we get the TRUE 78 sound here, and it sounds clean, and chystal clear. Ignore the spiteful reviewer who thinks the sound is bad. Les Browns has never soudned so clear on cd before, you can actually hear every note, because they didn'r "over-remaster." ASV(Academy of Sound & Vision), is a respected label, and believe me they know what they are doing. All of Brown's ESSENTIAL sonsg are here, including Leap Frog. Brown had one of the freshest bands around in the mid-forties, and he had the greatest girl singer in Doris Day(the worlds most underrated jazz singer). This cd is a God-send to those who really want to hear the msuic unfiltered, yet clearly and beuatifully. Great job ASV, let's hope for a Volume II!"
Romantic & swingin'

"This CD brings out a wonderful nostalgic quality. It's not the highest quality sound, but Doris Day's singing is so wonderful and the band just has that classic romantic big band sweet sound, I get transported every time I play it."
