About the album

First release in 1996.
One of the most famous sets of recordings in jazz history presented here complete and in stunning quality transfers by John R.T. Davies himself. Sleeve notes by Oliver-authority Laurie Wright. The complete set of the recordings by Louis Armstrong, Johnny Dodds and Oliver himself. For bonus points, the two very rare King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton duets and the pair of sides by Butterbeans and Susie with King Oliver accompaniments. The only word for this CD is "Definitive". New packaging. The first great black jazz band on record.

"Our no.1 choice - Retrieval, for whom John R.T. Davies has done his usual outstanding job."
Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD

"indespensible... ground breaking.. the benchmark by which all others are measured.. priority purchase"
