G. H. Elliott's career spanned many years covering the years of acoustic recordings up to the long playing vinyl record. He normally performed as a black face artist. Whilst some of the lyrics of his songs and his appelation of "The Chocolate coloured Coon" are no longer politically acceptable these date from another age when such things were not an issue. Included on the CD are the two Leslie Stuart songs Lily of Laguna and Little Dolly Daydream which were initially made famous by Eugene Stratton but which became in later days closely associated with G. H. Elliott. Fine songs superbly sung.
The CD contains 25 Tracks being electrically recorded between 1928 and 1931.
