Dallas – The Frank Barber Orchestra – Dallas


In 1974 the concert was issued on the 25 years Chris Barber LP series. The concert was recorded with only one microphone! It is fantastic what Dave Bennet and Paul Adams have done out of the original LP! It is the “classic” Barber front line of the early days dallas – The Frank Barber Orchestra – Dallas Chris, Pat, Monty, Eddie, Dick and Graham and the band plays at its best.

The CD comes with an 8 page booklet with a lot of information about the concert as well as about the bonus tracks. Thanks Dave Bennet and Paul Adams for your great work. His first appearance with the Chris Barber Band was in 1961, when Ian replaced Monty Sunshine. Ian left the Barber Group in 1968 and moved to the West Country, beeing still in business with jazz. He returned to the Chris Barber Band in 1979 and stayed till end of July 1998. Lake Records, dedicated his newest CD production to “Remembering Ian Wheeler” to this great musician, who played with all the great colleagues of the British Jazz scene and many more other international musicians. Pat Halcox, Lonnie Donegan, Jim Bray, Ron Bowden plus John R.

Halcox, Sunshine, Wheeler Band” without Chris. The next 5 tunes come from the period with Ken Colyer’s Band. Ian and Sammy in best form and it is one of my rare LP’s in my collection. Another long missed recording is here on this double CD set: “Ian Wheeler at Farnhalm Meltings”. Paul Adams has carefully remastered all recordings and is presenting here a fantastic “Remembering Ian” Double CD set. The sound quality is very good and the double CD set comes with a 12 page booklet packed with information and pictures! Thanks Paul for your great work.
