Marie Lloyd was famous for her "saucy" songs and is remembered today principally for the song "A little of what you fancy". She was one of the most popular
music hall entertainers and became known to the public simply as as "Our Marie". After her death, Marie's daughter Marie Lloyd Jnr., continued in her tradition whilst Alice, Marie's sister, had a career in
her own right.
Marie Lloyd recorded a number of her successful songs, although some of her most popular numbers such as "Oh Mr. Porter" and "Don't Dilly Dally" were never recorded by her. Recordings by Marie Lloyd,
Alice and Marie Jnr. are presented on this CD, together with a selection of those missing titles performed by artists who would have been alive to see and hear Marie Lloyd's stage performances. The CD
contains 21 tracks, transferred from original 78 rpm records.
