CD Description:
*DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE* A previously unissued recording of Chris Barber’s 1994 concert tour featuring his original 1954 band line-up which included Monty Sunshine, a Skiffle set with the inimitable Lonnie Donegan. The second CD features the 1994 line-up of Chris Barber’s Jazz & Blues band with John Crocker, Ian Wheeler, John Slaughter, Johnny McCallum, Vic Pitt and Russell Gilbrook. The concert was scheduled to be recorded and so the sound is excellent.
