Harry Champion - Cockney Bill of London Town (CDR3)

Harry Champion CD
Harry Champion (real name William Crump) was born in Shoreditch, London in 1866 and first appeared in Music Hall at the age of 15. In 1888 he changed his stage name from Will Conray, and with a wide repertoire of songs, many of them sung at breakneck speed, he became one of music hall's most successful artists. Harry Champion continued working into his seventies and died in London in January 1942. The CD contains 28 tracks, transferred from original 78 rpm records which were made between 1910 - 1936.
Track Listing:
Any Old Iron*, Boiled beef and carrots, You don't want to keep on showing it, Don't do it again Matilda, Ginger You're Barmy, Never let your braces dangle, Cover it over quick Jemima, I'm Henry the VIII, Let's have a basin of soup, Standard Bread, You ought to see the Missus in a Harem skirt, I'm getting ready for my Mother-in-Law, The Old Dun Cow caught fire, I'm proud of my old bald head, Home made sausages, Ragtime Ragshop, I'm William the Conqueror, You can't help laughing can yer? Little bit of cucumber, Doctor Shelley, Hey Diddle Diddle, Cockney Bill of London Town, I enjoyed it, Everybody knows me in my old brown hat, A good blow out for fourpence, The Old Red Lion, The end of my old cigar, Best that money can buy.
