Product Description

How appropriate that the first track is by Jack Hylton and his Orchestra. This was the great show band of the 1930s. Not for them the routine of the fixed hotel, restaurant or ballroom engagement. Prestige was maintained and enhanced by regular appearances on stage at theatres and halls not only throughout Britain, but also on the continent..
We are pleased to present this collection of twenty-two tracks, each one by a different orchestra, transferred from the original discs, all of which were issued between 1928 and 1943
The last track, Shout For Happiness was licenced for use in the box office smash The King's Speech

Features & Highlights

  • If the Hylton unit could be described as Britain's leading showband, few would dispute Ambrose's Orchestra. Ambrose's position as the man behind the top British dance combination of the period.
  • Henry Hall's band went from strength to strength, until by 1934, over fifty per cent of all the post arriving at Broadcasting House was for Henry from his multitude of fans.
  • Surely the record for longevity as an active bandleader is held, perhaps forever, by the late Joe Loss. He wielded the baton for almost sixty years, from 1930 until a few months before his death in June 1990.
  • It wasn't only good tunes that we received from across the Atlantic. Bandleaders arrived too - Carroll Gibbons, Jack Harris, Jay Whidden and Hal Swain all found fame and fortune on this side of the water. To these must be added Roy Fox, who landed here in September 1930, fresh from leading his own orchestra at the Embassy Club in Hollywood.
  • We know that for those who remember this music of the time, this album will bring back happy memories. For those perhaps too young to remember, it still has the ability to set your feet tapping.
