Review

Although it was 1961 before they had their first hit (courtesy of George Martin and Parlophone Records), the Temperance Seven's first LP goes back to 1957 on the Argo label, part of English Decca. One Over the Eight features the group in their trademarked freewheeling trad jazz style, turning in delightful performances on a brace of standards, including "Yes, Sir, That's My Baby," "Hard Hearted Hannah," "Tiger Rag," and more. The sound was state-of-the-art at the time and holds up well, and the recordings sound like the band -- who were technically "The Temperance Seven + 1" at the time -- was having the time of their lives, getting this first crack at the long-player market (a rare honor at the time in England). The annotation is nearly as enjoyable as the album, and anticipates any number of Monty Python and Bonzo Dog Band liner notes. The album was re-released as The World of the Temperance Seven in 1973. ~ Bruce Eder
