Jack Irons, Tenor • Carey Blyton, Piano

 II: A sweet disorder in the dress
III: My love in her attire
We apologise for the extremely poor sound quality; the original recording was made on 78 RPM shellac disc and later transferred onto low-quality audio cassette, with the result that it suffered from both the hisses and pops of vinyl and the muffled sound of tape. Attempts were made to clean up the audio during computer transfer, but the scope for improvement was strictly limited.


Reviews

…a clean, easy style that shows decided promise, and a refreshing scorn for ‘mere vocal effect’.

Musical Opinion, April 1960

…are grateful to sing and easy to play.
