Description

Music Hall was a uniquely British form of entertainment that lasted effectively for about 75 years, finally succumbing under the onslaught of radio, movies and its own step-child, variety. Legend has it that the story began in the Canterbury pub in London's Westminster Bridge Road, when Charles Morton opened a separate room to which men could bring their wives and be entertained as they drank. The venture was so successful that, in 1854, he had a new building erected next door, which he dubbed The Surrey Music Hall. Within a few years music halls could be found throughout the length and breadth of Britain. The advent of recorded sound just as music hall was enjoying its Golden Age meant that many of the comic turns and songs were captured on cylinders and discs. The 99 remastered tracks on this 4CD set feature the famous artists and songs of the era, such as Harry Champion ("I'm Henry The Eighth", "Boiled Beef And Carrots", "Any Old Iron?"), Florrie Forde ("Down At The Old Bull And Bush", "Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?", "Hold Your Hand Out You Naughty Boy"), Mark Sheridan ("Beside The Seaside"), Marie Lloyd ("A Little Of What You Fancy"), Gertie Gitana ("Nellie Dean"), Ella Shields ("Burlington Bertie From Bow"), Eugene Stratton ("Lily Of Laguna"), Billy Williams ("When Father Papered The Parlour")…. in fact it's a right ol' knees up from start to finish.
