The Turtles enjoyed eighteen US hit singles between 1965 and 1970, three of which (“Happy Together”, “She’d Rather Be With Me” and “Elenore”) were also huge hits in the UK. From their original incarnation as surf band The Crossfires, all the way to their final single, the Turtles traversed several different musical paths during their career. It is precisely this power through diversity that makes the Turtles’ body of work one of the most rewarding and enjoyable of the 1960’s – they never met a genre they didn’t like. Edsel Records is proud to present the band’s six albums, each as a 2 CD digipak set.

The Casa Loma Orchestra was a popular American dance band active from 1927 to 1963. From 1929 until the rapid multiplication in the number of swing bands from 1935 on, the Casa Loma Orchestra was one of the top North American dance bands. With the decline of the big band business following the end of World War II, it disbanded in 1947. However, from 1957 to 1963, it re-emerged as a recording session band in Hollywood, made up of top-flight studio musicians under the direction of its most notable leader of the past, Glen Gray. The reconstituted band made a limited number appearances live and on television and recorded fifteen LP albums for Capitol Records before Gray died in 1963.

In 2008 Sony BMG reissued one of Les & Larry Elgart's more substantial efforts, Best of the Big Bands, Vol. 1. This parade of polished and carefully executed instrumentals draws heavily upon their 1964 Columbia LP, Command Performance!, resulting in a smorgasbord of hits by such influential composers and bandleaders as Charlie Barnet, Count Basie, Tiny Bradshaw, Les Brown, Jimmy Dorsey, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Ziggy Elman, Benny Goodman, Erskine Hawkins, Woody Herman, Glenn Miller, and Ray Noble. With Charles Albertine's tidy arrangements almost invariably anchored by big beefy trombones, this delightfully dated music can and will come in handy for conspicuously languid retro lounging and boffo theme parties.

Back in the 1930's, band promoters started an all girl band called Ina Ray Hutton and Her Melodears. Their growing popularity inspired many other all girl bands to form during WWII, such as Rita Rio and Her Mistresses of Rhythm, and the Lorraine Page Orchestra. This documentary is a collection of the three all girl bands' performances.

Here's a pure nostalgic trip down memory lane for many, as Sammy Kaye leads his syrupy big band and vocal choirs though 16 songs that reflect the overly romanticized era of the mid-1900s. The unfortunate thing about Kaye's sound is that he is drowned out by the singers and string arrangements, so you never really get to hear his faux Benny Goodman-style clarinet playing. Still, this is traditional pop/pseudo jazz at its finest, including such well-known songs as "Daddy," "We'll Meet Again," "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," "Sweet and Lovely," "Harbor Lights," and "As Time Goes By." Perhaps not the best of the big bands in general, but some of the best from this one. It's a good CD, but for specific people with tastes yearning for the good 'ol days.

Cab Calloway's eccentric personality and wild onstage antics often overshadowed his musical contributions, when in fact, as this superb Columbia sampler demonstrates, the two went hand in hand. On all-time classic tracks like "The Jumpin' Jive," "Reefer Man," and the inexhaustible "Minnie the Moocher," the Hi-Di-Ho man's exuberance and vitality as a performer is grounded by his tight bandleading and the outstanding playing of his orchestra (which, over the years, included such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Eddie Barefield and Chu Berry).
