NO SIR, It's not easy single-handedly running what has often been referred to as: "the best free vintage music website on the internet".
And it may very well be, but this wonderful resource still costs thousands of dollars per year in operating expenses alone.
All the while long unpaid hours are spent daily updating, expanding and developing our future content.

This recording was produced in London, England at the Small Queen's Hall on October 24th 1927 with Jack Raine and Jack Jackson trumpets, Lew Davis trombone, E O Pogson alto & baritone sax, Chappie D'Amato alto sax, Billy Ternent and Johnny Raitz tenor sax, Harry Berly tenor sax & viola, Johnny Rosen, Hugo Rignold, and Jerry Hoey violins, Arthur Young piano, Emile Grimshaw Jr. banjo, Clem Lawton tuba, and Basil Wiltshire drums.
The vocal chorus is provided by Jack Jackson, Chappie D'Amato, Hugo Rignold, and Jack Hylton.
The band started recording under Jack Hylton's name in 1923. Jack became a well respected pianist and bandleader and was in great demand, so much so that he had to provide bands simultaneously in various locations under his own name. In the 1920's the band developed into an orchestra and had a busy schedule. They toured America and throughout Europe continuing until the 1940's when the orchestra disbanded due to it's members being called upon for war service.
At this point Jack Hylton's career was already moving towards that of an impresario discovering new stars and managing radio, film and theatrical productions from ballets to circus. His productions dominated the London theaters.
