From February 1931:

Len Fillis has done two more muted tenor banjo solos. They are of his own compositions Banjokes and Dizzy Digits (Col. DB354). The piano accompaniments are by Arthur Young. Both performances are in the most modern rhythmic style and the technique displayed is quite breath-taking. Without doubt two of the best instrumental performances we have had for many a day.
