The crackle of the original discs is often audible, and some tracks have an oddly murky sound. Intermingled with the studio recordings are airchecks of "Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Goodbye," "For Me and My Gal," "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Is It True What They Say About Dixie?," and "Alabamy Bound," complete with applause.
