LP Artwork: Things Ain't What They Used to Be (And You Better Believe It)

One of the first Ella Fitzgerald albums I bought with my hard-earned pocket money. And one of only two Ella releases on Reprise Records.

With more contemporary arrangements by Gerald Wilson, and produced by Norman Granz, the featured soloists were typical of the top-drawer line up that befits a singer of Ella's standing (Harry "Sweets" Edison, JJ Johnson, Joe Sample, Victor Feldman, Ernie Watts, etc).
