What a Jewel!

"I know everyone has purchased a CD sound not heard and wanted to return it asap! Well, this is not one of those.We found this CD on a visit to Guam. I hadn't heard of it but took a chance on the title alone. What a find!I must say that I was most impressed by each and every selection on the CD. The music took me to black and white films where dancing with your partner was the thing to do. Caldonia was a huge hit with our 11 year old son. Each cut on "Original Swingers" is clear, full of rythm and each song has a story to tell as in the song, "And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine", and some of the songs are just funny, like "Cole Slaw".This has been our best music purchase all year."
Not so swinging

"Many of the songs on this CD are more early rock 'n' roll than any kind of swing. Most of them didn't seem that dancable, at least in the swing styles I'm familiar with.If you're into Lindy, I'd recommend against this. Buy Frankie Manning's Really Swinging Big Band Favorites instead.But there were some good tunes: Cole Slaw is great."
