Benny de Weille on Philips

A 45 by the Geman/Dutch orchestra leader Benny de Weille (1915-1977), who had some success as a big band leader during the 1940s and 1950s in Germany. His influences were such jazz stars as Bennie Goodman and others. This one comes from the period of 1954-1956, when Bill Haley hit with "Rock Around the Clock" in Germany. Both sides are medleys with hits of the day. I post this primarily because of de Weille's interesting version of "Rock Around the Clock". Hope you also like the other songs. I apologize again for the bad sound quality.
