This recording was produced in Paris, France during October of 1935 with Django Reinhardt (guitar solo), Joseph Reinhardt (guitar), Pierre "Baro" Ferret (guitar), Louis Vola (bass).

*"Limehouse Blues" was composed by Philip Braham with words by Douglas Furber in 1922. This popular song was inspired by east London's Limehouse district.

The "Quintette du Hot Club de France" were one of the only groups of their kind comprised entirely of strings. This side features guitarist Roger Chaput's occasional replacement Django's best friend, fellow Gypsy Pierre "Baro" Ferret.
