Sale Price $90.00
Signature of the British orchestra leader.
Signature: "Jack Hylton", 3x1½ card. British pianist and orchestra leader Jack Hylton (1892-1965), born John Greenhalgh Hilton, formed Jack Hylton & His Orchestra in 1921 and began his epic recording career in 1923. The band, which gave its first Royal Command Performance in 1926, was extremely popular in the British Isles and in Europe, but wasn't heard in the U.S. until its first broadcast in 1932. In 1935, Hylton disbanded his orchestra to travel to the U.S., where he led a group of American musicians. Upon his return to Britain, he reformed his orchestra, which was as successful as his previous one. In 1941, Hylton, who was losing band members to the military, became a theatrical producer. He appeared at a final Royal Command Performance in 1950. Toned. Lightly soiled. Adhesive residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
