Lily Morris
Why am I always the Bridesmaid (CDR18)

Although in her younger days Lily Morris was famous as a principal boy in pantomine, it is for the songs she sang in the 1920s that she is remembered today. Her diction was perfect so that every word can be heard. This is the stuff of the halls - homely, tuneful songs, with irresistible join-in-choruses, and full of human nature. Included here are some of the rarer Pathe recordings as well as all her most famous songs. She is remembered today as a singer with a big personality and a voice to match. In 1925 she visited America where she stopped the show at the New York Hippodrome with so many encores that she had to make a little curtain speech. An eye witness at the time reported: 'every word and syllable she utters is a joy to the ear.'

Track Listing

None of your old Soldier's Tricks with me
Don't have any more Missus Moore

Mrs. Scott
Tiddley Hi
Since our Mother’s been a Lady
Because he loves me
That's where the Soldiers go
