"As the other reviewer said, it's freakin' spectacualr, but it's even better then that, it's the best rockin' swingin' blues cd compilation out there, the whole series(there's 3) is worth getting hold of before it goes out of print. These UK imports are essential for people who like to dance or just like early rock'n'roll, jump blues, rockabilly and swing, when they all were related to one another. Great stuff from the 40's-60's!"

"I'm a young energetic swing dancer, and believe me, it takes something fast and energetic to get me really into the jitterbug. EVERY track on this is perfect for swing dancing weather you are a lindy hopper, jitterbugger, shag or balaboa dancer, jiver, stroller, or whatever, it's all here. This is jump blues, swing, R&B, honking saxes, walin' vocals, all upbeat and 110% PURE Energy. This is the cd you need at your next sock hop or Lindy party!!! Freakin' awesome CD, essential. everyone from Louis Jordan to Joe "All Night Long" Houston is on thsi thing from late 40's to early 60's!!! So get ready to jump, jive, wail, swing, bop, all you high steppin' daddies and Dizzy Miss Lizzies!!!"
Let's Get Up An Dance

"A good mix of rock-n-rollin' Boppin' Blues, Boogie Woogie, early dance music. All the disc in this set by ACE are very good, with good sound quality. If you're looking for hard core rock-a-billy these CDs are probably not for you. But, then again we all need to expand our musical horizons some, they are worth the money and lots of fun to listen to.
