Product Description

Product Description

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 Strutters 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A COMPILATION OF TWO HALVES 20 Nov 2012
By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Here are the first four albums recorded by the Dukes of Dixieland on the Audio Fidelity label (earlier recordings were for Band Wagon in 1951, and Vik, an RCA subsidiary, in 1955). The first AF volume was "A Study in Hi-Fi Sound" and the second was "The Phenomenal D of D". Both were sub-titled "You Have to Hear it to Believe it", and those two comprise the first CD. The recording set-up succeeded in spotlighting each instrument in brilliant stereo, making the listener more conscious than otherwise of an over-enthusiastic drummer, and a rather weak clarinettist. A couple of the numbers run for over six minutes, and out of ideas.

Matters improve considerably with the second CD, thanks in no small measure to personnel changes, and a less harsh acoustic. It contains the third volume "Marching Along with the D of D", and the fourth "On Bourbon Street" (from which "Memphis Blues" has been omitted due to lack of playing time). The band is far more integrated, and the material receives sympathetic treatment. So despite my reservations about initial weaknesses, this generous compilation fully deserves top marks for value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definition of Dixieland! 16 Mar 2013
By Mary Bellis Williams - Published on Amazon.com

What can I say except this is the CD you want when you want to hear the best Dixieland. Impossible to hear it without toe-tapping at the very least, and dancing around the house mostly!

5.0 out of 5 stars At long last on CD 18 Dec 2012
By Joseph P. Durham, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally, the original Dukes of Dixieland on compact disc. This was one of the first stereophonic sound vinyl recordings ever released and I don't understand why it has taken so long for this to be put on CD. This is dixieland at its best and purest. For example, listen to the Dukes version of Saints, Just A Closer Walk With Thee and many many others. Of course, these artists are long gone now, but they remain alive on these CD's. I remember vividly listening to the original recordings in the 1950's. We had just gotten a stereo player, one of the very first and dad built in in kit form. I was immediately taken with the sound and this is a vivid reminder of those times.

My favorite in high school. I played trumpet in an informal group and we played these tunes together over and over.
Great sounds!

1.0 out of 5 stars don't buy it 27 Feb 2013
By Robert B. Vann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The discs are dubbed from LP's, you can hear the pop eleminator working. Wish whoever has the master tapes for these fine albums would do the cd's from the master tapes.
