Recordings Section 10 : Others 4 (2-3 Fields tracks) (Item 7 of 9)

Vol1 : Dinner at Eight: Carroll Gibbons

Carroll Gibbons and his famous Savoy Hotel Orpheans perform some classic big band numbers. Included are two Fields/McHugh numbers, the rather dull Dinner at Eight, and the rather jollier I'll Make a Happy Landing which comes complete with aircraft engine noise, and a clipped diction delivery by vocalist Jack Plant, which is typical of the era.

Another notable track is the novelty number (or at any rate, the novelty title) By Special Permission of the Copyright Owner.
