Stan Wilde's Wildcats - 1951.

Colin Aitchison sent me this recording and photo of Stan Wilde's Wildcats from 1951 at the Northern Sound Studios. The tunes are Washington and Lee Swing and Lonesome Road.
Colin's dad, Hughie Aitchison is on trumpet, my old buddy Ronnie McLean plays trombone, Brian Clarke and Alan Shipley are the clarinets. Stan Wilde, his braces hanging down as he sits at the piano gives it a wonderful period feel, Alan Brown, guitar, and Joe Ward, drums, complete the line-up.
Thank you Colin.
Lance.
