The Quintette of the Hot Club of France

The Quintette of the Hot Club of France -

Solitude (Ellington) Recorded 21-04-1937 HMV Paris
When Day Is Done (De Sylva) Recorded 22-04-1937 HMV Paris

Not much to say about the talents of Steph and Django. I'll let the music speak for itself.
I've always liked the hot club recordings but always with the a little goes a long way,
most transfers of the hot club recordings are pretty sub standard. yep i even hate the mosac ones of a few years ago. (good clean preessings they had to work on by the sounds of em but WAY toooo much NR)
so here is a well played disc found at a junk shop years ago that had spent most of it's life without a sleeve. BUT STILL. it beats the rest it its aural brillance.
and the stereo fakery ive made up works well

Oh and remember that I restore these with the Treble on my rig turned way up. so if you want to "hear" more out of these and all my recording play around with your treble control!
