There were no original master tapes. Magnetic tape wasn't available as a recording medium in the US in 1938. The original masters were two acetate and two aluminum masters cut during the performance. One acetate master was sent to the Library of Congress archives, the other misplaced and found in 1950 by Benny's daughter. The aluminum backup masters were assumed lost as well but discovered in 1998. This remaster was made from the original acetate masters but unfortunately there is a lot of surface noise.

My Dad introduced this album to me when I was a wee lad - and I have loved it ever since. I have many releases of this album set, but this remastered issue is my favorite for listening. It holds a place in my collection in the favorite area.
