Playing tracks by
THE OUTLAWS featuring their drummer BOBBY GRAHAM, DENNIS NEWEY, TED TAYLOR FOUR, THE BARONS, EMILE FORD AND THE CHECKMATES and more.
1961 - the year the boundaries were pushed back, instrumentals became a tour de force forte, and trad jazz boomed with the ascendancy of the Temperance Seven (while Acker Bilk's one-off excursion into lush orchestral, Stranger on the Shore, proved his biggest hit of all). Jamaican music - mento and ska (then known as blue beat) - multiplied with Blue Beat and Starlite releasing it. Joe Meek's out-there experiments in pop hit the big time.
