The Vinyl District, your daily brick and mortar, indie record store fix. Little Published: January 6, Bookmark the permalink. Trackbacks are closed, but you can post a comment. Please try again later. Verified Purchase. The content although not all unreleased is excellent quality. A must for a true Bonzonian. Terrific service great prices! Brilliant - case broken but I suspect this was caused during transit - looked like someone had stamped on it!!

An excellent collection of recordings from the 20's and 30's. Having been a bonzos fan since the 60's, I was drawn to this by the title and was not disappointed. It lets you hear how good some of these acts really were and confirms that we Brits have always been a bit eccentric in the music department.

It also brought back hidden memories from my childhood. My gran had several Billy Cotton records which she would play on a Saturday morning when we used to visit as well as a couple of Spike Jones tunes I used to play repeatedly. Sadly, they were thrown away when she passed on. The saddest aspect to this is that were they new, contemporary recordings, they would never be released.

If I had come across this CD in a shop, I wouldn't have given it a second glance - even with eye-catching artwork. It appears to be a Bonzo Dog Band CD which I admit would not be on my shopping list when in fact it is an entertaining selection of novelty and cheer-up recordings from the s and s. Most of the songs in this selection were revisited in the s by the Bonzo Dog Band, whose members were particularly interested in British Dance Band novelty records.

Needless to say, this collection is largely made up from the wonderful legacy of recordings that the British Dance Bands have left us and which are still attracting new devotees in the 21st Century. Some songs included in this compilation are new to me. Go Whistle! It would have not have been out of place in this particular compilation. This Live bootleg, though, has always been a bit mysterious, and very alluring. That was until I found the actual record on eBay.

To my delight the vinyl turned out to be in pristine condition. That said, I have to warn you that the quality of the tracks themselves is not great. These problems are not due to the quality of my transfer but because these tracks were recorded off the radio onto tape, and then pressed onto vinyl.

Most of these tracks are available from other sources in better quality, so I figured I would preserve the bootleg as is and let it speak for itself. That said, there are some possibly unique recordings on this, so read on below…. Condition :. This item is in Excellent condition or better unless it says otherwise in the above description.
