Lillie Delk Christian has an absolutely great backup band on these sessions, but her vocals often leave a little to be desired. The best of the songs is Too Busy, were Armstrong's backup scat vocals almost save the day, and Lillie even manages to swing a little when Louis is singing with her. You can almost see her smiling as Pops lays down some of the real thing.
