Joe Holley wrote the album’s musician’s notes and wails on hot fiddle and a rare vocal on China Town. This album also contains the original version of Fat Boy Rag (May 20, 1946) which just started as a jam featuring Junior Barnard. As Luke Wills says in the notes to Volume 7 “…Bob just turned to Junior and said ‘Hit us with something Junior.’ Junior’s mouth flew open, like ‘What am I going to do?’ That’s where it started. It was a joint venture – everybody had a little into it.” The later Columbia Records release (Sept. 6, 1946) was a much more structured tune.

The graphics on this album were a tribute to the original, unknown designer(s) of the Tiffany Transcriptions logo and ad art.
