Irreverent and anarchic, the Bonzo Dog Band were one of Britain's best-loved 1960s groups. But their eccentric brand of musical humor was not without precedent; they drew much inspiration from so-called novelty foxtrot records of the 1930s, which they lovingly learned from 78 rpm discs. This compilation presents the original recordings of all such songs that they recorded and performed live. Painstakingly remastered, it comes with detailed notes, rare images, and an introduction from the great Legs Larry Smith, core Bonzo Dog Band member. Includes tracks by Leslie Sarony, The BBC Dance Orchestra, The Savoy Havana Band, Jack Hylton & His Orchestra, Percival Mackey & His Band, The Rhythmic Troubadours, Hal Swain & His Band, Albert Whelan, Jack Hylton's Jazz Band, Whispering Jack Smith, Noel Coward, Bebe Daniels & Ben Lyon, Jack Payne & His Dance Orchestra, Jay Wilbur & His Band, Billy Cotton & His Band, The Continental Five, Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers, Ray Starita & His Ambassadors, Jay Whidden & His Band, Roy Leslie, Jack Hodges the Raspberry King, and Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians.
