A few years ago the Editor of Memory Lane Magazine and I started a new big project to release recordings by artists from the 78rpm era.
We agreed to issue all the recordings (commercial or otherwise) by Al Bowlly.

The CDs have informative notes about the recordings themselves.
Matrix numbers and recording dates are included that show accurately which version or take is on the CDs.
We have already included many alternate takes and other rarities.
All the Bowlly releases are issued by the band he appeared with and by date order.

At December 2015 we have released for the first time in order of recording by band or solos all of Bowlly's recordings (apart from the Ray Noble records, Lew Stone and his German output.
