About the album

Hot Dance Music And Jazz from Britain 1923-1936, is again a fine release by Retrieval Records, a division of Challenge Records. Retrieval is one of the finest examples of a record label offering some of the most comprehensive sides to artists. For this release the label collected jazz dance music from 1923-1936 as heard in the public dance spots in Londen. Recordings were made of visiting American musicians, like Billy Arnold’s band, as well as UK bands like the one of Jake Hylton.

Retrieval Records' disclaimer states that they took over the Fountain catalogue, founded in 1971 by Ron Jewson and Norman Stevens, later joined by John R.T. Davies. It was Davies who is responsible for all of the restorations you hear at Retrieval, even from the very beginning. The label respects the quality and the provenance of the recordings: the listener will find that nothing has been added or omitted. If you think it's difficult to convince websites to cover content on these artists, you can only imagine the difficulty associated with asking a record company to pour money into restoration / remastering projects of hundreds of 78s by artists who are virtually invisible on the musical landscape. What Retrieval has in their catalog is truly a labor of love, and guaranteed to make you want to sport a fedora and sip on a gin fizz.
