STUDIO 51 CLUB SESSIONS WITH COLYER - Ken Colyer's Allstars
These two sessions come from the period in Ken's career when he had just retired from being a full-time band leader, as advised by his doctor. So he sought out guest spots with other bands and this CD was recorded at Ken Colyer's favourite venue, Studio 51 in January and February 1972. Great line-up including Sammy Rimington - with some unusual tracks not easily found on other albums. Full details inside.
