Max Miller was one the top Variety comedians of the 1930s and 1940s. Whilst there have been a number of re-issues of Max Miller's live performances which he recorded for HMV around the time of World War II, it is not intended to repeat these here. Lesser known are his studio recordings, which Max made for Rex and later HMV during the 1930s. Whilst missing the immediate audience reaction of the live recordings, these tracks allow us to listen to a number of different sides of Max's stage personality. The songs and patter, written almost entirely by Max himself, epitomise the "Cheeky Chappie."
