I genuinely had no idea that when I started up this blog that British dance bands would prove so popular!! So, as a thank you to all those who offered encouraging messages, here's another posting bending my pre-war rule. It's all a bit too 'sweet' for my tastes, but check out the version of 'Smoke, Smoke That Cigarette' by Paul Adam, it's a winner!

  1. Youv'e outdone yourself again ! These two last ones are great additions. I haven't come across much by Johnny Claes, and obly have a few odd tracks. Also not a lot of Paul Adam around as far as I know.
