Hi there!

I'm a big fan of the various Barber bands and a massive fan of Louis jordan. I love the recordings that Louis made with the band. They are by far the best recording dates that Louis made at that point in his career.

That I know - 9 tracks were released, but I remember hearing somewhere that there were a couple of other tracks that were recorded which were not released at the time (possibly with Ms. Patterson singing). I would LOVE to hear these extra tracks! Is there any way I could get hold of a copy of these? What are the names of these tracks?

Thank you in advance for any help you can be!

Miles,

The Chris Barber Discography has one unissued title from the Louis Jordan session (15 Dec 1962, Olympic Studios)

T'ain't Nobody's Business (vocals, OP/LJ)

There was also a Saturday Club broadcast with The Band and Louis from about the same time.

Hope this helps.

Hi Julian,

That's great! Now I'm on the case. Where to start looking? Was the Radio Broadcast a BBC tape do you know?

Thanks

Miles,

It was not, as far as I am aware, a BBC tape.

I understand it was recorded off air.
