This is very much a hodgepodge set that does not live up to its clichéd title. The recording dates and personnel listing are not included in the chatty liner notes and, although there is some excellent music here (including "Strictly Instrumental," "I Had the Craziest Dream," "You Made Me Love You," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," and "Ciribiribin"), the programming is not in chronological order and almost seems random. Why hasn't Columbia ever released its many enjoyable and valuable Harry James recordings in complete and coherent fashion?
Harry james is really good. And he's from the mid 1900's

Great. Loved it for 50 years!
You Made Me Love You
No vocals? I bought this song expecting to hear Helen Ward singing (as her name is credited after the song title). Nice tune but disappointed.
