Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG25079A
SIDE-B MG25079B



Comments

a 1st issue with thin paper sleeve (the latest album listed on the back cover is MG-25018).

Inside The Groove

A great Dixieland session by a legendary Original Memphis Five's founder, from original Swan recording.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

I noticed the drummer Tony Spargo was a member of legendary Original Dixieland Jazz Band :) Anyway, this album, a come-back recording for Phil Napoleon, sounds very swingy. A truely nice Dixieland session.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
