5.0 out of 5 stars TOPS !!!!, 4 Feb 2010
Really great double album this. One cd's comprised of upbeat dancy modern twists on old style swing with lots of sampling of old records and great beats, the other is all original 1930s swing. Both are excellent. And the 1930s stuff suprisingly dancy and up beat.(way better than I though 1930s stuff'd be).

Together the whole package blew me away. Great value, too.

This one's a must for any music aficionado's collection. Especially if you like a jazzy retro vibe.
