“…the Firehouse Five Plus Two made up in spirit for what they generally lacked in originality.”

On September 29, 1958 the LP album Firehouse Five Plus Two – Dixieland Favorites was released on the Good Time Jazz label. The band was comprised of members of the Walt Disney Studios animation department, including Nine Old Men members Ward Kimball (trombone) and Frank Thomas (piano). The group also included Danny Alguire (cornet), Harper Goff (banjo), Clarke Mallery (clarinet), Monte Mountjoy (drums), and Ed Penner (bass saxophone); it would later include Jimmy MacDonald, George Probert, Dick Roberts, Ralph Ball, and George Bruns. The album contains several Dixieland standards recorded by the band at their peak.
