More Info:

This is the latest release in a new series that offers the American Juke Box, Harlem Hit Parade, Race Record, and Rhythm & Blues chart hits by a selection of the biggest stars of the 1940's and 1950's swing, jazz, jump blues and R&B scenes. Most of these performers have never had their biggest hits compiled in one place, and for many years the likes of Count Basie and Duke Ellington were considered above the vulgarity of "hit records," but these collections will feature all the 78's they made that were money spinners on jukeboxes across the world. Acrobat. 2005.
