Embracing a 1920/30s trad-jazz style, The Temperance Seven's unique sound paired with their marvellous musicianship and ingeniously humorous compositions saw them come to popularity in the trad-jazz resurgence of the early 1960s.
This excellent set from Jasmine has been lovingly remastered and comprises of the group's first singles and EPs followed by their LP 'The Temperance Seven' from 1961.
Included within are a plethora of great songs and contains their No 1 hit 'You're Driving Me Crazy' which was produced by the now legendary Sir George Martin who was eventually dubbed 'The Fifth Beatle' such was his level of involvement with the band. Other superb tracks of note are Ukelele Lady featuring Peter Sellers and of course 'Pasadena' which went on to become the group's signature tune and which appears on this set in both its single and LP version.
This magnificent mix of weird and wonderful eccentricity and polished musicianship is a must have for fans of trad-jazz and its 1960s revival.
