Questions & Comments
- Decca & the Dectones: "Decca & the Dectones"
- Jessica Mitford died in July, 1996. While she is remembered most for her political activism and writing, she also had a great sense of fun and enjoyed singing around the piano with friends. This recording and the one below capture her musical side. As lead singer of Decca & the Dectones, Ms. Mitford delivers "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and "Grace Darling" with wit and style.
