2012 two CD collection. Too many bands play Dixieland like it was just a dose of medicine they have to swallow each night; the Dukes don't - They obviously get a tremendous wallop out of their music, and it comes clear and sharp on this collection that the Dukes combine enthusiasm with enormous ability. The Dukes of Dixieland were the first jazz band to record in stereo and all four of the albums on this fantastic two CD set are in glorious stereo. Features many great classics like: "St. James' Infirmary"; "Dippermouth Blues"; "South Rampart Street Parade"; "Darktown Stutters Ball" and a rare vocal outing from Betty Owens (A.K.A. Fred's wife) on "My Blue Heaven". It could be said that the Dukes get more enjoyment out of playing their music than the listeners do from hearing it. Well that is a challenge if I've ever heard one! We are pretty sure that you will love every minute of this wonderful collection of songs, oh yes indeedy. Jasmine.
