5.0 out of 5 stars HENRY HALL IN BLOOM 29 Nov 2013
By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This compilation commences just under a year after Henry Hall had become director of the BBC Dance Orchestra, and demonstrates what a polished outfit it became under his leadership. One reason, I suspect, was the number of first-class arrangers he employed, including Bert Barnes, Arthur Lally, Ronnie Munro, Sid Phillips, Van Phillips and Peter Yorke. The result was a clear, transparent sound which lends itself to prolonged listening. Most of the vocals are taken by Les Allen, one a duet with Phyllis Robins; there's one vocal by Anona Winn, and drummer Len Bermon takes a couple, as does saxophonist Dan Donovan. Bud Flanagan & Chesney Allen put in an appearance, first a sentimental ballad, then a comedy routine. Overall it's a generous helping of delights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chuffed to bits! 26 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD, together with vols. two and three, shows Henry Hall's Beeb Band in a most positive light (the later, bigger, band was, rhythmically speaking, rather blander than the 1932-1934 edition). Arrangements are pleasantly unsentimental, with plenty of pep, variety and excitement. The forward momentum when the rhythm secion plays four to the bar is terrific, so where Sid Colin's unkind comment in his book on the dance bands (Henry having had his musical tuition in the Salvation Army and the orchestra sounding the part) hails from I don't know. The programme consists of a number of well-known tunes, with the majority being relatively obscure, so the CD also offers the pleasure of discovery. After the relative disappointment of Vocalion's latest Paul Whiteman CD (which duplicated too many titles already available, mainly on HEP), and yet another Roy Fox CD from 1932 (which I didn't even bother to order), this platter restored my confidence in Vocalion, compliments of Henry Hall.
