There have been a number of attempts to revive Music Hall in the past 60 years. In Australia, Gaslight Music Hall was a popular TV programme which used a similar format to the BBC's Good Old Days. John Bluthal, latterly known for his appearances in The Vicar of Dibley, wrote the scripts and performed in the show. The CD features spirited renditions of many old favourites, the words being particularly clear.
