"You will like this band if you like the similar "sweet" British swing bands of Jack Payne, Ambrose, and Jack Hylton. The Harry Roy CD recording starts with 1933's Bugle Call Rag and proceeds through 1940's Goody Goodbye. I bought it at first for just one number, "What a Difference a Day Made" from 1935, with beautiful playing from the band and a blase vocal from Ivor Moreton, the band's pianist. It is probably the best song on the CD. Other interesting tunes on this CD are the vocal "That's the Way I Like to Hear You Talk" which sounds to me like the tune from the American song "Pop Goes Your Heart", and "Where did Robinson Crusoe go with Friday on Saturday Night?" Other covers of pop American tunes include La Cucaracha, Lullaby of Broadway, Maple Leaf Rag, King Porter Stomp, and Heigh-Ho from Disney's Snow White. The sound is very clean on these transfers."
