Released in the UK in 1964 on the Decca 'Ace Of Clubs' label. More Gonella, this time with all the lovely poppin' n' cracklin' that comes with these old LP's. The tracks range from 1932 to 1934, recorded with an impressive backing band, featuring a veritable who's who of British dance band players of the time (Tiny Winters, Monia Litter, Bill Harty etc), and features some pretty smart rhythm guitar from Al Bowlly no less!!
