    This was just reissued today. I haven't heard it yet.

    It is from Collectable Records, out of suburban Philadelphia. Their website is www.oldies.com , but they should be available at retail.

    I've had this for years - it was included in the 5-disc set Duke Ellington: The Reprise Studio Recordings. The Mary Poppins set is certainly not essential Ellington material, but the band seemed to enjoy playing it, and it's a heck of a lot of fun to listen to if you're a Disney music fan (which of course I am!). Recommended!

    How's the quality on the Collectables disc? Was it remastered from the orginal master tapes?

    Thanks for the heads up on the CD release! I stumbled on the LP a few years ago on ebay(sealed copy), and have wondered why it hadn't gone digital.

    It may not be "The Okeh Ellington" collection, but one thing it DEFINITELY is not--another Radio Disney Jams.
