From Billboard - December 4, 1961: An inventive program for the super stereo buff. Arranger Manny Albam has selected a flock of tunes with more of less the same basic chord construction and arranged them in pairs. For instance "Stompin' At The Savoy," goes together with "Johnson Rag," and "Rio Rita" is coupled with "I Got A Feelin' You're Fooling'." The tunes complement each other handsomely and Albam's scoring for horns, strings and winds is the dressing on the tasty salad. A fine addition to the Stereo Action series

The jacket features a circular die-cut which reveals Albam's head as printed on the glossy sleeve.
