Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen were the most popular, successful band of the late 50s/early 60s UK Trad Boom, and also enjoyed considerable international successes. This compilation anthologises their first ten singles for Pye Records, between 1960-62, alongside a selection of EP and LP sides, and other collectors' rarities.
Includes their million-selling, international hits 'Midnight In Moscow' (which reached #2 in the United States), 'March Of The Siamese Children' and 'The Green Leaves Of Summer'. Also features the UK hits 'Samantha', 'I Still Love You All', 'Someday (You'll Be Sorry)', 'So Do I', 'The Pay-Off' and 'Sukiyaaki'. The bonus tracks include a trio of early collectors' rarities, recorded for small labels before they became popular and successful, which are virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD. This is the first time that Kenny Ball's early recording career has been thus compiled.
