5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB EARLY 30s HOT DANCE BAND, 29 Dec 2007

This review is from: Joe Haymes and His Orchestra, 1932-1936 (Audio CD)
For the earlier half of the thirties Joe Haymes led a superb band, which recorded for a wide variety of labels, some of which were issued also on their English equivalent. often using pseudonyms. Yet today his musical contribution is almost forgotten, which state of affairs is quite undeserved. This reissue presents a fine selection of his recordings between mid-1923 and mid-1936, and demonstrates what a superbly swinging outfit he led. The excellence of the remastering has produced a warm, rich timbre with a lot of depth, and you'll discover fresh delights in the arrangements each time you listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nursery of musical stars, 1 April 2008

This review is from: Joe Haymes and His Orchestra, 1932-1936 (Audio CD)
A most welcome addition to the long deleted Bluebird double album (lp), presenting commercial issues and transcriptions; the big band buff will find many musicians that went on to bigger fame in name bands: Peewee Erwin, Johnny Mince, Toots Mondello, Bud Freeman, Sterling Bose to name but a few. Haymes's band could be called a white territory band: it may have some rough edges here and there, but it swings like hell and the pleasure the men must have had is more than evident.
Looking for something fresh, in an overcrowded field of commercial big band reissues, then don't waste any time and order this gem.
