Russ Morgan & His Orchestra Play 22 Original Big Band Recordings

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This is an album of radio transcriptions by Russ Morgan and His Orchestra. The performances are good, the sound quality is fine, and the disc has a reasonable running time of over an hour. But the album's title is deceptive: the word "original" suggests that these are studio recordings, which they are not, and the word "hits" suggests that they were among Morgan's popular records of the period, also untrue. In fact, none of his hits are here, even as re-recordings, though it could be argued that some of the songs were hits -- for other artists. Docked one diamond for dishonesty.
