Vocals: AF - Arthur Fields; FH - Fred Hall

Fred Hall played in what used to be known as a "peppy" style, and his recordings convey a sense of uninhibited exuberance. Most of his records came out on the Okeh label, and many were issued in England on Parlophone. This compilation spans his known output, beginning in mid-July 1925 with his first two sessions, both of which were very jazz-oriented. The band gradually began to move towards a more novelty style, both in choice of material (often written by Fred Hall and vocalist Arthur Fields) and treatment, as can be discerned from the titles.

As compiler Chris Ellis points out in his liner note, a major factor seems to have been the arrival of Philip d'Arcy, who played harmonica, violin, piccolo and second piano, and imparts a distinctive country flavour to some numbers. Not that they abandoned their jazz roots; Mike Mosiello joined in mid-1928 and the session for Banner that October produced creditable versions of two standards. This reissue also includes alternate non-vocal takes of "Harmonica Harry" and "'Tain't No Sin", and the rare Clarion coupling from the band's last known session in late 1931. Sound quality is first-rate, and this should appeal to devotees of the Roaring Twenties.
