2015 two CD set. First time on CD for the debut LP of The Temperance Seven, a Top 20 LP hit in 1961 in an edition that is also a wider celebration of the music of the Edwardian era and inter-war years. The set includes music from Ken Russell's precocious, loving dramatized documentaries and short films for Huw Wheldon's long running cultural television show Monitor and for Humphrey Burton's Omnibus that followed later in the '60s, along and song selections from John Betjeman's still heart-warming 1973 documentary Metro-land, in which Betjeman, with very characteristic eloquence and good humor, describes the rise of Suburbia. Formed in the mid-fifties, The Temperance Seven were at first part of the "trad jazz" scene that had flourished in post-war Britain. As the movement matured into the early 1960s, the group took a highly entertaining and for a time hugely successful left hand turn to have fun with the music of the '20s and '30's, applying light-hearted art school attitudes involving period costumes and whimsical names; sending up the whole era with impeccable style and tremendous irony.
