Tom Clare
The Fine Old English Gentleman (CDR30)

Tom Clare, famous for "Songs at the Piano", sang topical songs which are full of social comment. From the opening track taken from a 1906 cylinder to the final recording from 1926 there is always plenty of interest. The early tracks have the carefree atmosphere of the Edwardian days, but these move onto the black humour of such songs as "What did you do in the Great War Daddy?"

Tom Clare's classic monologues of "Winkelheimer’s Motor Ride" and "Tom Clare’s version of The Telephone" are also included.
