NEED A FAVOR FROM ANY UK SPLOOFUSER!

Hi! I'm trying to find recordings of Ted Heath's band back in the '40's. It's hard to find any big band in the U.S. much less that of a band from another country. Specifically, if possible, I want any recordings that list the band personnel. My music teacher, Harry Murphy, played trombone with Ted Heath, and I would love to get some recordings!

I am willing to pay any expenses, including your time looking for the music. If you find what I want, email me at flcyclist@gmail.com and we'll discuss payment. I appreciate any help any of you can give me! Thanks in advance!

Thanks, guys! I hadn't thought of checking out Youtube. Although I DO want some CDs or LPs or something permanent.

Hi Nancy,

Buy direct -

It'll be no more expensive to get Amazon.UK to ship them to you, than if I do!

Apologies - have only just seen this.
I hate to admit it but I even remember the band!
But, surely, as above, Ebay and Amazon will give you all the opportunities you need?
Great sounds!
