Wilkie Bard - She sells Sea Shells (CDR13)

Wilkie Bard CD
Wilkie Bard was a specialist in character studies and his sketches included “The Cleaner” and “The Bathing Machine Attendant”. Often he appeared in female roles such as “I want to sing in Opera”; this song also exploited a technique known as the “Interrupted Turn” which he originated and which has been used by most double acts ever since. He had a long career in pantomime, appearing twice at Drury Lane where he introduced the vogue for tongue twisters like “She sells seashells on the seashore”. The CD contains 24 tracks, being recorded between 1908 and 1936.
Track Listing:
The Cleaner, All Day and Martin, Sea Shells , The Policeman (I’m there if I’m wanted), You, You, You, Let me sing , My little deitcher girl , I've struck a chorus , Put me upon an island , Will you sing this glee with me?, When the bugle calls , I want to sing in Opera , I can say “Truly Rural”, I really can’t reach that top note, Come up in my balloon , See me dance the Minuet , Valse, Valse, Valse , All change for Llanfairfechan , Robert go to Dinner , Doorkeeper at Frightleys , The Wriggly Rag , Don't play In the Shadows , You've got to sing in Ragtime , The Bathing Machine Attendant. - more track info . . .
