    Truly magnificent!

    I only have 2 big band CD's in my collection, but this is the greatest! Stray Cats were popular in my day, so when I saw this, I had to have it. It was a great investment for my music library. This album is full of energy!

    Brian Setzer:Comeback Rocker.

    A guy who has brought two genres of music from out of the shadows,I was thrilled when I finally got a hold of Setzer's Dirty Boogie.I've heard the songs without words and enjoyed them immensely.What Brian's done has given them a new spin and refreshen the lives of all the songs on this cd.I hope he gets around to my part of the country.I wouldn't miss it for anything.
