Al Bowlly started his recording career as a singer when he arrived in Germany after his extensive tour though Africa, India and the Far East.  He had been a professional entertainer for over 4 years when he arrived in Berlin and it is evident from the recordings he made in Germany that he had already developed much of the technique for which he later became known. These are some of Al’s rarest records and most collectors will still be missing many from this era. So this is an opportunity to possess our first batch these historic recordings.

Over the last year or so we have issued the Durium titles which contain an Al Bowlly vocal as part of the Complete Al Bowlly – Lew Stone CDs. This is now the opportunity to hear some of the Durium sides featuring other singers. The Durium Dance Band, under various leaders, was a first-rate band, with top vocalists and were brilliantly recorded by the Durium record company. And surprisingly, few have ever appeared on either LP or CD. So if you like early 1930s British dance music at its best, look no further than this CD.

DVD: Dance Hall

DVD Dance Hall

The 1950 film Dance Hall features the bands of Geraldo and Ted Heath, and all the music comes from their repertoire, impeccably recorded and imaginatively filmed. The director was Charles Chilton who cleverly combines the romantic stories with scenes of 1950s social realism, played out in and around the dance floor.  The score includes Goodnight, Sweetheart interpreted by Geraldo as a snazzy quickstep, a soupy vocal You’re Only Dreaming  sung by Hy Hazell, and a New Years Eve celebration where the two bands combine in raucous versions of Tavern in the Town and Little Brown Jug.

This DVD made by Tony Staveacre contains both a montage of the musical scenes from this movie  which runs just over 16 minutes, plus the full uncut  film which was 78 minutes .
