    Perhaps the strangest of Louis Armstrong’s many recordings*, and the design reflects that fact. Note the eszett used as an ampersand — a mistake we’ve seen before on phototype record covers.

    No rating system of any kind can really describe just what a total piece of crap it is. This is the last Louis Armstrong record anyone ever needs to get.
