16 Most Requested Songs

by Benny Goodman


6 New & Used Starting at $3.27


16 Most Requested Songs is a midline-priced collection that spotlights many of Goodman's best-known and most popular performances for Columbia Records, including "Let's Dance," "Avalon," "Somebody Stole My Gal," "Why Don't You Do Right," "After You've Gone," "Stompin' at the Savoy," "How Am I to Know?" and "Sing Sing Sing." Although it's far from a perfect retrospective of his career, it's still a nice sampler of familiar items, and it may satisfy the needs of some casual fans who only want the hits.
