It's great, it's british

Ronald Strange says:

Delicious. Saw Ted at the Epsom Baths back in the 1050's. Asked him to play Maleguena. He didn't! Check it out if you dpn't know it. Sure you'll love it.

Raymond Simkins says:

I followed Ted Heath dancing at Leyton Super Baths, enjoying concerts on Sunday afternoons at Southgate and many other venues. I never imagined that all these years later his music would sound so fresh all these years later (I'm 88 now) – but it does and I am so pleased to realise that so many others appear to feel the same as I do. Long live the swing era!!!

Drayton Bird says:

My goodness, how often I went to see them. Fell in love with Lita Roza. Oh my God.

Jerry Norbury says:

The song and the solo by Ronnie Hughs was very popular at live gigs, but Ronnie forgot what he'd played on the record. He was made By Ted to go out and buy the record so that he could play the same improvised part every night.

Colin Donaldson says:

Brilliant! No wonder Ted Heath and His Music took the USA by storm. That band could swing! Great arrangements, great sidemen, all held together by a great leader. If anyone is in any doubt about the Heath band's right to be considered as one of The great big bands, listen to a lesser known track, his version of Out of Nowhere. Thanks for posting this, and all the others!

John Ward says:

I have been trying to find this track for ages. This track is used at the beginning in the last episode of the BBC 1 series of years gone by – should be re-aired – called Big Jim and The Figaro Club as Sylvester McCoy in his character role as Turps the painter cycles past into shot while combing his hair with this track playing and turns a corner to run into a policeman in the road and goes straight over the cycle handlebars and they both end up on the road. This music is fantastic but if you can catch this series somehow, Sylvester did the bit going over the cycle handlebars himself, no stuntmen involved!. 10/10.

Robin Brace says:

Absolutely sublime. How bands like Ted's are now missed. What happened to the music industry that we substituted pure musical gold for the trash we get all the time today

I take i no-one else was brought here by Lyndsay Anderson's film "O Dreamland"?
