Albert Whelan, the famous Australian Entertainer, had a long and successful career, which lasted from the early days of the 20th century,
right up to his death in 1961. In his act Albert dressed immaculately, and was the first person to use a signature tune, which he whistled at the start and end of his performance.
As well as his own songs, Albert Whelan was an excellent mimic, and this coupled with the ability to update his act lead to a long recording career. The songs here include some of Albert Whelan's best known as well as popular tunes of the 1930s.
