Album Review

This CD reissues the complete set originally titled Dixieland Favorites plus adds five other selections from other dates. Most of the music dates from 1958-60 when the Firehouse Five Plus Two was at the peak of its popularity. Unlike most of their other releases, all of the selections on this CD are dixieland standards including such songs as "Fidgety Feet," "Muskrat Ramble," "Royal Garden Blues" and even "When the Saints Go Marching In." An excellent second-level band, the Firehouse Five Plus Two made up in spirit for what they generally lacked in originality. A fun release.
