INCLUDES THE COMPLETE STEREO LPs HARRY JAMES IN HI-FI, MORE HARRY JAMES IN HI-FI & WILD ABOUT HARRY PLUS RARE TUNES FROM THE SESSIONS ORIGINALLY OMITTED FROM THE ALBUMS.

Featuring Conrad Gozzo, Ray Sims, Willie Smith, Corky Corcoran, Juan Tizol, Buddy Rich & Helen Forrest.

Made during the first years of the LP era, the Harry James albums Harry James in Hi-Fi and More Harry James in Hi-Fi comprised some of the greatest hits of the James orchestra - a unit that by that time had been working unceasingly with few changes since 1939.
Among the instrumental figures present on both of the 1955/56 albums were trombonist Juan Tizol (who had made a name for himself as part of the Duke Ellington orchestra) and saxophonist Willie Smith. By the time the LPs were made, both had been playing more than a decade with Harry James.
Tizol entered the band in May 1944, while Smith joined a few months later, in November 1944. Both albums were best sellers when first issued, and are presented here in their entirety with the addition of four bonus performances that were taken from the More Harry James in Hi-Fi sessions but originally issued on compilation albums. Also added is the complete album Wild About Harry. Mark Loew (2007)
