This Collectables reissue assembles 24 tracks by the Harry James Orchestra recorded for the Columbia and Brunswick labels between 1938-1952. Swingtown has an edge over the usual best-of collections by going deeper into the trumpeter/bandleader's catalog and coming up with quality material, including Benny Goodman's "Lullaby in Rhythm," "All the Way," "Comes Love," and "I Still Get Jealous." ~ Al Campbell

Rating 5.0 Harry James Swingtown Music Lover: from Portland, OR US -- July, 1, 2003

This is a fabulous collection of swingin' tunes from the James band. The sound quality is excellent - even the older tunes from 1938 thru early-40's sound magnificent! The selection of cuts is perfect - just the right mix of instrumental and vocals. This CD is guaranteed to get your feet tappin' and your heart thumpin'. If you're a Harry James fan like me, you'll love this CD. If you're looking for a CD that truly captures the excitement of the big band sound of the 40's, this is it!
