This release contains Johnny Hodges’ complete original LP Blues-A-Plenty (Verve MGVS 6123). The album showcases the great alto saxophonist backed by an all-star group featuring Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Vic Dickenson, and an Ellingtonian rhythm section formed by Billy Strayhorn on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Sam Woodyard on drums. To the original nine tracks of the original LP, we have added the only two existing alternate takes from the date, as well as another complete session (which first appeared on a compilation LP), that also presents Hodges with Ben Webster.
