Notes

This pressing has silver / gray labels with black type that have a black rainbow logo at top (See photos). Three other pressings exist with a different logo that has a 'stash bag' instead of the rainbow.

Excerpted from the extensive liner notes:
"There is a lot of good music here in considerable variety covering a substantial piece of the Swing era historically and stylistically. The sacred subject matter is delightful sweetening, but this album is a collector's plum from any point of view."
