Jack Hylton and His Orchestra

Hylton Stomp



This recording was transferred, digitally restored and kindly made available to me by Julian Dyer.

A Billy Ternent composition (and presumably arrangement) from Hylton's period with Decca, one of Hylton's occasional forays into jazz and hot music. As with many other such exercises, this feels to be a variant on Tiger Rag!

Restoration Notes

This excellent transfer and restoration, originally listed on YouTube was completed by Julian Dyer using Brian Davies' restoration software. I have also applied a few of my own Butterworth bandwidth limiting filters to this work, along with some very mild peak limiting to bring the level up a bit.

Free Download

With the permission of the original transfer engineer, I have made this work available for free download.

Vorbis is used for site downloads as it provides transparency at about a third of the file size compared to MP3. There isn't really much point for using FLAC as the final listening format (all processing is done losslessly, of course) as the quality of the recordings themselves is already rather limited given their age. The general consensus on HydrogenAudio is that Q5 is enough for transparency with modern recordings, so the downloads offered are encoded at a more than ample Q7. Vorbis is by far a superior codec to MP3, as transparency is obtained at almost half the file size.
