Ray Anthony led an extremely popular band just as the big bands were starting to decline. His swing band had millions of fans that attended its performances at the ballrooms and purchased all his Capitol recordings. The tunes appearing in this early 50's compilationare instrumental and introduces all the songs that made up the band's mythical album "Campus Rumpus", plus some other tunes related to the orchestra. This CD also allows us to rediscover Ray's great musical talent from his jazziest times.
