I first heard these tunes on crackly old 78s when I was but a lad... they made me curl up with laughter then, and they still do the job nearly 40 years later. There are some classic moments of musical mayhem on this CD, including personal favourites "The Man on the Flying Trapeze" and "Laura" (though there are a few strange omissions: no "Cocktails For Two" or "I Dream Of Brownie With The Light Blue Jeans"). The audio quality is generally OK considering the tracks have been transferred from 78s, though there are a few glitches (but none of the fake studio echo reported on some other Spike Jones CDs). The second CD is a stereo recording from 1956, but has obviously been transferred from a well-worn LP, and suffers from very poor sound quality on the louder sections (and this being Spike Jones there are quite a few loud sections). For a budget CD this is good value, though I would have like more information in the sleeve notes, such as the personnel involved, and a spell-check!
For the first disc alone (his classic recordings) this is worth checking out; the second disc is less than essential, and I don't think I'll play it more than once.
