Dutton (including Epoch and Vocalion), one of the UK's finest record labels specialising in re-issuing on CD music recorded between the 1920s and 1970s, and in issuing albums of modern digital recordings, was established by leading British recording and re-mastering engineer Michael J Dutton.
The Epoch series champions unrecorded music of 20th-century British classical composers such as Arnold Bax, York Bowen and Granville Bantock in world-class modern digital recordings performed by some of Britain's finest orchestras, conductors and soloists. Vocalion features light music, big bands/dance bands, jazz, easy listening, vocalists and 1950s/'60s pop, and first made its name with a celebrated and ongoing series of CDs featuring the recordings of famous 1930s and '40s British dance bands.
