Do you remember the Yorkshire jazz band?

A message from Simon Barclay

"Hi - my father was bob Barclay and was one of the founding members of the Yorkshire jazz band and I am trying to collect as much information about his club studio 20 and the band as its a slice of social history. I'd like to document, before its all forgotten. I have a c90 tape that was given to me some 40 years ago and I would like to get it moved over to digital asap as its so old as, it has all the tracks that the band made in chronological order from the late 40s to early 50s. I have no idea of the track names or who the artists are and was wondering if anyone could help me with this project.

Warm wishes
