• Short Summary

    George Elrick and band play 'All Those In Favour Of Swing Say "Aye"' - dupe of NSP 299.

  • Description

    No titles. Commentator introduces "The smiling voice of radio, George Elrick and his Band".

    Bandleader George Elrick introduces the band as they play 'All Those In Favour Of Swing Say "Aye"' (?). He sings his intro "as president of the Elrick Swingaroos" and introduces 'Miss Conway', a glamorous blonde who sings a solo spot.

    Various solo band members are introduced and perform. Finally Johnny Hudson, a young boy in short trousers (actually looks older, could just be short man!) is introduced and plays a trumpet solo. The whole band then finishes with a loud finale.

    Note: this is a really good example of British swing band of the 40s with nonsense lyrics - very Americanised, though George seems to have a Scottish accent! Singer Joy Conway is very lively - seems influenced by popular US band singer Marion Hutton and a bit of Judy Garland in there too! - SL.

    This is duplicate of item in New Sound Pictorial NSP 299 - see separate record for details.
