The leisurely, moneyed life of the leisure classes of the thirties has vanished for ever.  The elegance is still there of course, and the shops and the nightlife; but the rich and famous spend more time globe-trotting.  The delights of  nightclubs, restaurants and hotels are of a different order now.  The time has long since past when various establishments vied for custom through the excellence of their music, their own bands for dancing and listening to, the glittering cabaret stars, singers, speciality acts and variety performers, all swept away into a past now fondly recalled by those lucky enough to have seen them perform, but who can now enjoy many of their performances captured on recordings made during those glamorous far off times.
