About

GRP's Swingsation sampler may not satisfy collectors and hardcore fans, who already have these 16 featured songs on original albums or comprehensive collections. Nevertheless, this is a good collection for casual fans and neophytes, since it contains a good balance of familiar hits and lesser-known tunes from Louis Jordan's Decca recordings, including "House Party," "Saturday Night Fish Fry," "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens," "Crazy Baby," "Chartreuse (You Dyed Your Hair)," "That Chick's Too Young Too Fry," "Blue Light Boogie," "Barnyard Boogie," and "Let the Good Times Roll." True, there are a number of great songs, such as "Caledonia," missing, but it's an enjoyable listen that's worth its budget-price for budget-minded listeners. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
