This CD of extremely rare material of George Webb's Dixielanders is the first to be released for many years and includes key recordings made during their short-lived but influential career. At the heart of this album are rare air-shots made for overseas listeners and not heard since they were made in 1946 with the Dixielanders on top form. There is also a previously unreleased extract from a farewell concert made when the band was joined by a young Humphrey Lyttelton, long before he became a legendary musician and broadcaster and is worth buying for this alone.
