Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Liner Note Author: Drew Kent.
  • Recording information: 10/12/1939-11/05/1951.
  • This extensive five-CD chronicle of the British entertainer George Formby's World War II output features live morale-boosting performances of classic novelty songs like "Mr. Wu's a Window Cleaner Now," "It Might Have Been a Great Deal Worse," and "She's Got Two of Everything." Formby, who also had a successful acting career, is a link to the pre-war British music hall, and his idiosyncratic style and broad Lancashire accent are an education in mid 20th-century British tastes in entertainment.
