Chris Barber's Jazz Band: Chimes Blues (1954)

From July 13, 1954, this is Chris Barber's Jazz Band playing "Chimes Blues", in the format (78 rpm) in which the record was originally released. The gramophone is almost a hundred years old -- it was a wedding gift in 1911. I'm not sure if the record is worn out or I need a new needle -- sorry about the deterioration in sound towards the end: up till then the sound is pretty good!
