Description

Scotland's premier Trad Jazz Band of the 1960s producing happy, goodtime popular music. If you were looking for a classic Trad Jazz band of the 1960s The Clyde Valley Stompers fitted the bill. Their sound was big and brash and they were enormously popular. They had formed as early as 1952 and made their first recordings (on disc 1) for Decca's Scottish Beltona label in 1956. It wasn't until 1959 under the leadership of Ian Menzies, and a switch to the major Pye label with the legendary Lonnie Donegan producing, that they began to have any real success. Vocalist Fionna Duncan was a great asset and gave them a minor hit with 'Salty Dog' in 1960. Despite several attempts they were not able to repeat the chart success. They became Scotland's premier band and toured the UK extensively. Their popularity was short-lived and essentially it was all over by the end of 1961. They struggled on until 1963 with an ever-changing personnel, but were one of the major casualties when the Trad Boom came to an end. The Stompers had some good musicians and produced happy, goodtime, popular Jazz. This 'Double CD For The Price Of One' package covers all their recorded output from 1956 to 61 plus one previously unreleased track.. The band is still remembered and this release should prove popular.
