"For those of you who just think of Vaughn Monroe as the muscle-voiced singer of "Racing with the Moon" and "Ghost Riders in the Sky", this CD may come as somewhat of a shock. Monroe also played trumpet and led one of the better, yet underrated, big bands of the era. And that band could really swing! This is a collection of transcription recordings (done in 1943), roughly split between vocals and instrumentals. Monroe was once quoted as saying that it was RCA which forced him into recording so many vocals, and that he preferred the instrumentals. I agree, and after listening to "Comin' On", "Old Man Robbing a Baker" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot", you probably will too."
