ē Jack Hylton put forward the theory of his success in dance music. A correct balance between harmony and melody and the third element, rhythm to develop the modern type of music, which he described as “symphonic syncopation".

ē The majority of these twenty-three titles are still today instantly recognizable, featuring the greatest songwriters of the Golden Age and bringing back memories of the Hollywood Musicals. The four Al Dubin and Harry Warren songs in the “Forty-Second Street” Medley recall that unforgettable Busby Berkeley musical starring Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, Bebe Daniels and Warner Baxter. Dubin and Warren also wrote the Gold Diggers Song and Honeymoon Hotel, the latter from the Busby Berkeley film “Footlight Parade”. Three lesser known songs by famous composers are Cole Porterísí After You from the Broadway Musical “Gay Divorce”, Rodgers and Hartís You Are Too Beautiful and Irving Berlinís Iím Playing With Fire. Sam Coslowís Thanks and The Day You Came Along are from the Bing Crosby film “Too Much Harmony”. Youíre An Old Smoothie comes from “Nice Goings On”, the first of Leslie Hensonís five musicals at the old Gaiety Theatre. The majority of the vocals feature Pat OíMalley, the Irish singer, who had succeeded Sam Browne with the Hylton Band at the beginning of 1930 when Sam joined Ambrose at the Mayfair. The Trio is Pat and Billy Ternent with either Jack himself or Sonny Farrar
