Chairman's Choice CD

Various Artists
Chairman's Choice (CDR22)

This CD features a wide range of top line Artists, including Charles Coborn, Nelson Jackson, Hetty King, Harry Fragson, Yvette Guilbert, Eugene Stratton, G. H. Chirgwin, plus members of the Lloyd family.

Charles Coborn sings his two most famous songs "Two lovely Black Eyes" and "The Man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo" plus his self-penned "He's alright when you know him" together with three other songs. Some of Marie Lloyd's songs are performed by her sisters and daughter in a rare 1930s "Marie Lloyd Memoirs" recording consisting of six short tracks which they introduce.
Hetty King, the male impersonator, recorded very few songs, but two of these are featured here.
Eugene Stratton, teamed up with Leslie Stuart, one of England's finest song writers, and here are presented four of these songs sung in their original form.
G. H. Chirgwin shows us some true Victorian sentiment in his performance of "The Blind Boy", which gives a flavour of live performance with its calls to the Gallery.
Harry Fragson, who had quite a cult following in England, and was particularly famous in France, gives us an insight into two new ideas of the late 19th Century - The Employment Agency, and the Department Store.
Some old favourites here as well as some less known tracks. In fact, something for every Music Hall enthusiast on this 30 track CD.
