Avis sur l’album

In the early 1960s, the Temperance Seven was a popular trad jazz band in Great Britain. That particular band became inactive by the mid-'60s, but reappeared as the New Temperance Seven in 1970. After recording in 1974, the group was off records for 15 years until this CD launched the Upbeat label in 1989.

Much better are their renditions of "Louisiana," "That Certain Party," "Sugar" and "Eleven Thirty Saturday Night," but this set is definitely a mixed bag with too many vocals.
