High society London style
Review By NS94944,April 2011

Although British dance orchestras back in the 1930s rarely got as hot as their more famous swing counterparts in the United States, they do play exquisitely voiced big band arrangements for dancing and romancing. Close your eyes and imagine yourself by the fireplace in a country house listening to the BBC, or in evening clothes sipping champagne in some posh London hotels before the war. You’ll particularly like the refined and yet passionate voices of the lady and gentlemanly vocalists singing the latest hits from Broadway and the West End with typical English understatement. Only a few short years after these records were made this world would disappear, never to be replicated again.
