This definitive recording is not entirely made of altoist Earl Bostic's hits; in fact, "Arrividerci Roma" was never previously released. However, virtually all of Bostic's best-selling numbers are here, including the two-part "That's the Groovy Thing," "Flamingo," "Sleep," and "845 Stomp," plus later tunes taken from albums. 1964's "Walk on the Wild Side" is from Bostic's final King record, cut a year before his death
I had purchased a similar CD with 14 of his greatest Hits. Apparently, these are the same songs on the other CD listed as 14 Greatest Hits (Green and White Cover). But other wise I have discovered a great artist and fell in love with his music. It has a nostalgic feel to it.
