The Victory Bands 1928 - 31
Victory bands label
'Lost' light music from the dawn of electrical recording.

This CD contains a treasure-trove of music which was so popular between the wars that no one thought to preserve it - so it has now become virtually inaccessible to the modern listener.

Recorded between 1928 and 1931 by a number of different bands and light orchestras under the pseudonym 'The Victory Band' this is the music you would have heard on seaside piers or in light orchestral concerts during the 1920s and 30s.

These cheerful and spirited renditions include some pieces which were believed 'lost', but have now been re-discovered and transferred to CD for posterity.
