PRE-ORDER BOTH LIMITED EDITION 78RPM VINYL RECORDS. RELEASE DATE 1st OCTOBER.

 

Enjoy both of the brand new vinyl 78s in this specially priced bundle package combining the wonderful sounds of both the sweet and hot dance orchestras of the 1920s and 30s.

 

MIDNIGHT WITH THE STARS AND YOU

 

"Midnight With The Stars and You" will be forever linked to the famous crooner Al Bowlly and the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's haunting film The Shining.

 

With their brand new performance, Alex Mendham and His Orchestra takes inspiration from the vintage recording and transports you back to the atmospheric nightlife of London in the 1930s.

 

Pressed in a limited run on blue vinyl, this luxury double sided 78 rpm record features a recreation of the lush Ray Noble arrangement in rich hi-fidelity sound and is presented in a beautiful original art deco sleeve.

 

On the flip side is the equally charming rumba foxtrot in the style of the famous pianist and bandleader Eddie Duchin orchestra, entitled "Dust On The Moon".

 

SHAKE THAT THING

 

"Shake That Thing" is a tour-de-force performance by Alex Mendham and His Orchestra.

 

A blazing instrumental and an anthem of the Jazz Age, "Shake That Thing" is done in the style of the hot West-Coast dance bands of California and is a feature for their star slap bass player Tom Wheatley.

 

Originally recorded in 1926 by the band in residence at the Cocoanut Grove, led by Abe Lyman - this vinyl 78 captures the original frantic spirit but the Mendham Orchestra adds it's own hard-hitting edge.

 

Pressed in a limited run of just 300 copies, this luxury double sided 78 rpm record features rich hi-fidelity sound and is presented in a beautiful original art deco sleeve.

 

On the flip side is another equally legendary track from the Cocoanut Grove. Alex Mendham swoops in for the vocal on the exceptionally hot "One More Time".

 

All copies of the records include a complimentary download of each selection so you can enjoy the music even if you don't have a turntable or wish to keep the records as souvenirs.
