Nellie Wallace & Maidie Scott - Mother's Advice (CDR16)

Windyridge CD
Nellie Wallace was billed as “The Essence of Eccentricity”. The CD contains all her issued recordings. Her character was of an eccentric spinster with appalling dress sense. She had a wide repertoire of excellent songs. These include the famous "Under the bed" where our hero searches in vain for a man under the bed, and the risque "Three times a day". In addition to Nellie Wallace, the CD features the demure Maidie Scott (shown here on the CD cover) who specialised in the “musical monologue”. The songs all tell a story, often with a twist at the end. The CD contains 22 Tracks, being recorded between 1912 and 1936.
