Liner Notes:

In line with Gladwynne Records' desire to provide only the best in musical entertainment, we are presenting a double barreled smash, an album featuring the Wizardry of the great Al Hirt, with guest star Pete Fountain also providing four selections.

Both of these artists have carved a niche in the entertaining world as the finest Dixieland musicians to have ever entered the musical scene. Al Hirt combined this great talent with an ability to be an extremely fine master of ceremonies, to produce one of the outstanding Television shows on the networks.

In addition to having his own show, Al Hirt has appeared and starred on many of the top offerings of the television networks, and his list of credits are too numerous to mention. His wonderful personality comes to the fore in his many nightclub engagements, and he is constantly in demand. In short, he is one of the highest paid performers in the industry.

Pete Fountain is acclaimed as one of the leading clarinet virtuoses to have ever stepped upon a musical stage. One should only sit back and enjoy this album to realize the potential of the great artist.

We are truly proud of this album, for we are presenting two of the greatest - AL HIRT and PETE FOUNTAIN.
