Reseña de álbum

Collectables has compiled an adequate collection of songs by this novelty vaudeville jazz outfit that surfaced for a short chart run in the mid-'60s. Although limited in range and at times far too obvious, at their best the New Vaudeville Band delivered a whimsical, sometimes clever take on original and imitation tunes of the 1920s and 1930s. Their hits are here (including the title track, its witty clone "Finchley Central," and the catchy "Peek-a-Boo," along with some of the better album tracks) — as well as some real clunkers. The hits are the best songs here, and the uptempo ukulele-led "Sadie Moonshine" and playfully risqué "That's All for Now Sugar Baby" add some depth to the collection. Fans would have been better served if more tuneful and humorous album tracks had been selected rather than the unfortunate "14 Lovely Women" or the tepid likes of "Holiday Inn" and "Green Street Green" (both performed better on Herman's Hermits albums, incidentally). Another flaw is the lack of recording information and even songwriting credits in the liner notes. Still, this is more than enough New Vaudeville Band for most people, while devoted fans and the curious will be rewarded by supplementing these compact disc versions with the albums in order to get a more flavorful taste of this often entertaining group.

awe-inspiring

the first time that i heard the new vaudeville band was the first time that i truly "heard" music and how absolutely wonderful it is. geoff stephens, the mastermind behind this stuff, is a genius. this record is BRILLIANT. favorite of all time. so wonderful.

NOT STEREO! MONO!!

I was happy to find this before I found it to be MONO. Very disappointed in that.
I was happy to get the added songs from the original vinyl. The CD version is actually a best of, using the same art work and misses a few songs - so we are stuck with lower res mp4's.

Great music

Everyone that loves music should get this album. It was released a year before I was born and evidently I've loved it from the first time I heard it.

Of course it was recorded in mono. Very little was recorded in stereo in the 60s.

Biografía

Fecha de formación: 1966

Género: Pop

Años de actividad: '60s

One of the oddest one-hit wonders of the '60s, the New Vaudeville Band — true to their name — drew from the swinging vaudeville, trad jazz, and British music hall styles of the '20s and '30s to create a distinctively anachronistic brand of novelty pop. The group was masterminded by producer/songwriter Geoff Stephens, who in 1966 convened a group of mostly anonymous studio musicians (including drummer Henry Harrison) to record a jaunty, old-timey British number he'd written called "Winchester...
