From the UK, here's Lord Rockingham's XI (pron. eleven), and a rarity that can be found on the lounge/exotica compilation 'Frolic Diner 3'.
Lord Rockingham's XI were the house band for an English TV show called 'Oh, Boy', which ran from 1958 to mid-1959.
They were fronted by Scottish composer Harry Robinson (real name was Robertson), and were comprised of no less than 11 band members.
To me, what stands out on this 1:45 of silliness is the Hammond organ playing by the lovely Cherry Wainer, who hails from South Africa. There's just a lovely bass to it!
This tune was a minor hit on the US charts, reaching number 96.
Anyway, if you like this record, purchase Frolic Diner.
I have no financial interest in uploading these videos other than introducing an otherwise unknown public to an unknown music genre!
