Put out by Columbia Special Products in 1982, this three-LP boxed set only contains around 90 minutes of music (15 minutes per side) but hits many of the highpoints of the Boswell Sisters' relatively brief recording career. During the 1931-33 period the Boswells were often accompanied by top jazz all-stars including trumpeters Bunny Berigan and Manny Klein, trombonist Tommy Dorsey, Jimmy Dorsey on clarinet and alto, violinist Joe Venuti and guitarist Eddie Lang. Many of their top jazz-oriented performances are on this box including "Roll On, Mississippi, Roll On," "We've Got to Put That Sun Back in the Sky," "Everybody Loves My Baby," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," "Down Among the Sheltering Palms," "Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia" and "Crazy People." The only thing that keeps the release from being considered definitive is that it is long out-of-print and difficult to find.
Formed: 1925 in New Orleans, LA
Years Active: '20s, '30s
