All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
As a label, the U.K.'s Proper does a pretty decent job of assembling a great cross-section of tracks, decent sound, and fairly annotated notes though labels names seldom if ever appear either in liner notes or in track notations, only catalog number...hmmmm all for a really great price.

This set of Fats Waller material covers the years 1922 -1943, virtually his entire professional career.

True fans will want to seek out the RCA sets which are exhaustive in their research, presentation and execution. This is a fine introductory package, but that's it.
