Thanks to "Bob" this L/P takes me back to my teenage years and Concerts at our Local concert hall "The De-Montfort Hall" Leicester... which in those days was  acoustically equivalent to the Big Arena's of today !!!..and yelling and clapping to the big band sound of "Ted Heath "
This L/P is great because according to the back sleeve it was recorded with a legitimate audience in the "Decca" Studio's in little man fiddling with the knobs to get the clapping sound of an audience !!!!...All The great Big bands tracks are here including a couple of surprises !!! all you "Big Band" fans enjoy this one....AND anybody who wants a new/old musical experience give it a listen I'm sure you will enjoy it !!!!
