I’m in the market

Time for some music! Today we bring you ‘I’m in the market for you’ played by the Cunard Dance Band. Cunard certainly had dance bands on their liners which, in those days, were taking people on journeys rather than just cruising.

The Cunard Dance Band did not have fixed personnel. It depended who was available.

The record was released on the cut price Piccadilly label. This label only operated from 1928 to 1932 so that fixes us fairly well in history. In fact this record was released in 1930.

So there is the record, complete with a Piccadilly paper sleeve showing a price of 1/6 or 7½p in present money.

The label itself is quite pleasant.
