The Very Best of Reginald Dixon
For more than forty years, Reginald Dixon was the most famous and best loved of theatre organists. He will be forever linked with Blackpool and the organ of the Tower Ballroom. So much so that he became known as 'Mr. Blackpool'. All the recordings in this special 3 CD tribute collection were made in the Tower Ballroom between the years 1934 to 1938.
