From Billboard - September 26, 1960: Here is a collection of the favorite vaudeville and minstrel tunes taken from the palmy days of that era of showbiz, but done in a polished stereo manner that would never have been heard in the tank town theater circuit. A top-notch complement, which includes men on banjo and tuba, turns out "Sidewalks Of New York," "Mr. Tambo And Mr. Bones," etc. A myriad of percussion appears to the delight of the stereo buff and it's all recorded in the highest professional manner. Package can generate excitement.
