I first went to a Chris Barber Concert at the Guildford Odeon in 1955 at the tender age of 14. I have been a fan ever since.
In about 1959 or 60, when an impecunious apprentice, a friend lent me a Chris Barber LP called Elite Syncopations, it featured multiple track recordings of Chris with rhythm section and the tunes were mostly if not all Scott Joplin. I have searched for this record for many years, can anyone sell me a copy or is there a CD available?
I still enjoy listening to the old recordings, they seem as fresh today as when they were first released. Many thanks for all the pleasure over so many years.
Elite Syncopations has been released as a CD from Lake Records (Nr LAKE LACD 43; however it is not in the acutal catalogue. Try Ebay for a second hand copy. (Website of Lake Records:
