The Columbia/RCA live package includes nearly 163 tracks of Pops' most popular songs along with many that are far less familiar; 75 tracks are being released for the first time. The set begins with 20 tracks from Armstrong's1947 concert at New York's Town Hall with his small group dubbed the All Stars: Jack Teagarden on trombone, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko, pianist Dick Cary, bassist Bob Haggart and two alternating drummers, George Wettling and "Big" Sid Catlett.

Also included is Armstrong's 1947 Carnegie Hall concert, which sat improperly labeled in RCA's vaults for over half a century and is issued here for the very first time. Some 90 minutes of material was preserved—18 tracks, also featuring Teagarden, Cary and Catlett, but this time with Barney Bigard on clarinet, bassist Arvell Shaw and the vocalist Velma Middleton.

A Los Angeles studio date is also included here because it was originally released as a live concert, according to a press release. The set also includes two never-before released tracks recorded in Ghana, one with local musicians, singers and dancers; an unreleased track from a London concert; “Mack the Knife” from Carnegie Hall; an interview of Armstrong by Edward R. Murrow that aired on the television show See It Now; and more.
