Big Ben Banjo Band, Let’s Together Some More [EP] (1957)
With a name like the Big Ben Banjo Band I was powerless to resist. This is the right side of novelty music as far as I’m concerned. I love a good novelty-record, it’s a fine line though; when there’s some musical ability attached (virtuosity even) that certainly helps eh…This is a good fun EP of old show tunes and standards performed in a medley style with this banjo ensemble tearing through the material in full fun and folk spirit – there’s a touch of jazz in the playing also. Twelve songs in less than 20 minutes. I bought this recently on a whim and I’m very glad I did.
