This reissue starts with ten of the first recordings by the QHCF, from late 1934/early 1935, as reissued on a 10" Oriole LP. That's followed by an album based mainly in 1937, which included two duets by Reinhardt and Grappelly, and their Trio of Violins recording with Eddie South and Michel Warlop. The third album is "The Legendary Django", which featured him both solo and in various combinations, mainly from late 1937 and mid-1939, and the fourth album is set in wartime. For me, the most interesting element of the reissue is the inclusion of the four numbers, including two alternate takes, which Larry Adler recorded with the QHCF in May 1938.
Sound quality is variable, with occasional traces of surface noise. Django's virtuosity is on display throughout, and is all the more incredible given the injury to his right hand, which robbed him of the use of two fingers! Grappelly's tone sounds more biting here than it did later on, particularly after he'd joined forces with Yehudi Menuhin. The wonder is such an unlikely pair (Reinhardt and Grappelly, that is) ever joined up in the first place, given the former's inattention to personal hygiene, and the latter's scrupulousness. We can only thank our lucky stars that they did.
