Double LP

The entire 1956 concert! On vinyl for the first time!

Pressed at Pallas in Germany

"A historical gem.... darn near priceless!" — AllMusic

This 1956 concert by Louis Armstrong & His All-Stars is a historical gem, which is finally getting its vinyl debut with this double LP release. Recorded on March 26, 1956 at the Civic Auditorium in Grand Rapids, Mich., it affords jazz fans a chance to hear what the barnstorming Armstrong's shows were like in heartland America.

Armstrong's affable presence is pervasive, but not always center stage, as each member of the All-Stars gets his turn in the course of the revue. The release was remastered for vinyl from analog tape and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.
