Vanity-pressed fund-raiser record for what appears to be a Shriner band from Wichita, Kansas. There are no songwriting credits anywhere to be found, and the only place a date appears is on the two-sided insert that, fortunately, was still inside of the album.
The term "Dixieland" isn't strictly accurate, as the contents range from 1920's-style jazz to Western Swing (due to the prominence of the fiddle player, who is quite skilled).
This album is professionally recorded, and has a decent sound. Personally, I was hoping for something looser and more raw...even sloppy. There is real talent here, but unfortunately, the tracks without vocals are the best ones...mostly because a couple of them are taken into dinner-theatre-novelty territory, including the great "Sheik of Araby," which will leave you digging for Fats Waller's version. Also, the band is extremely fond of a certain "trick ending," because they use it over and over on this short album.
The running times on the labels are completely inaccurate, and the whole thing is over in about 31 minutes. The back cover gives us one of those photo collages that were so popular in the late 1960's and early 70's, but fills up a lot of real estate: only in the previously-mentioned insert do we read that all profits from the album's sale went to the "Shrine Crippled Children's and Burns Hospitals," which is something to be proud of!
