Fats Waller and his Continental Rhythm



A full 78 from Mr Waller and his Continental Rhythm

These tracks I believe, Were recorded in London in 1938 (someone help me with the dates!)

They are like his US recording but with a Violin as well , Enjoy!

Thanks goes to Mr. LF Barfe for the info below

The Fats Waller sessions with his Continental Rhythm took place at the EMI Abbey Road studios on 21 August 1938. Personnel was: Dave Wilkins (tpt); George Chisholm (tmb); Alfie Kahn (clt & tenor sax); Ian Sheppard (tenor sax); Fats Waller (piano and celeste); Alan Ferguson (guitar); Len Harrison (bass); Edmundo Ros (drums). His recordings on the Abbey Road Compton organ are worth hearing too.

Blimey George Chisolm and Edmundo Ros Wierd!!
