I am currently trying very hard to obtain a recording of 'Oh, Didn't He Ramble' from the Ken Colyers Jazzmen album - or the album itself. I need to get hold of it a.s.a.p. as my Father has requested it for his funeral and we have ben unable to locate his copy. If anybody can help, or point us in the right direction, we would be very grateful. Thank you for help.

I am unable to see any issued 'Didn't He Ramble' it looks as though the time the KC Jazzmen recorded the title was in Denmark
on 18 April 1953, at the present time this remains unissued.

Chris has of course recorded the track at the Royal Festival Hall
30th October 1954. The track is on Lake Records LACD 141/142

This CD is available from Lake Records site, click on the link shown

The band is the same as KC JM, with the only change being Pat Halox on trumpet.

Sincerely, Julian
