The High Hatters & Silent Movie Theme Songs

Fair Pickings is pleased to offer two CD’s featuring transfers of 78 records of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Please note that we do not use any sort of computerized noise-reduction. Our transfers are made using an Esoteric Sound re-equalizer and a minimum amount of filtering. Thus many of the sides will contain more surface noise than some commercially released CD’s.

Price for either CD for U.S. delivery is $12.50 postpaid; for overseas delivery please add $3 postage and handling for surface mail or $6 postage and handling for airmail.

One of the great hot dance bands of the late twenties and early thirties, The High Hatters features arrangements by their director, Victor Jory.
