  1. Hi there, Colin --

    Thanks for posting cover & credits from one of my favorite LP's. The Boyd Raeburn Orchestra, with its vocalists Ginnie Powell and David Allyn, its arrangers George Handy, George Williams, and later on Johnny Richards is one of the most underrated bands of the era.

    Feel free to visit my blog for some articles which shall endorse this fabulous outfit of the mid, late 1940's.

    Keep up the good work.

    Swingingly yours truly,

    Brew
