Various Artists
Palace of Varieties (VAR58)

This CD comprises two separate entertainments which were previously issued on LP as Daniel Farson presents Music Hall and Palace of Varieties.

In 1961, Daniel Farson gathered together some of the great artistes of the past at the Metropolitan, Edgware Road and recorded their performance. This must be one of the very last recordings featuring these old stars.

Palace of Varieties was a long running BBC radio series which attempted to create the atmosphere of the old Halls, and the recorded show features a mixture of old time stars and more recent chorus singers.
