Buddy Johnson's Orchestra was one of the most exciting and indeed popular black big bands in the pre-Rock 'n' Roll era.

This double disc set presents hits galore with 52 superb tracks including Let's Beat Out Some Love, Baby Don't You Cry, When My Man Comes Home, That's The Stuff You Gotta Watch, They All Say I'm The Biggest Fool and many others.
Features the superb voices and talents of Ella Johnson and Arthur Prysock, and including fully detailed liner notes.
