Sam Mayo - I'm Going to Sing a Song (CDR33)

From the Footlights CD
Sam Mayo, billed as "The Immobile One" performed his songs whilst remaining motionless on stage. Sam Mayo's songs are quite different from the normal run of music hall performances. With titles such as Things are worse in Russia and I feel very bad I do this may not be a recipe for optimism. However, loved by audiences then, and nowadays something of a cult figure, Sam Mayo brings the unexpected to his lyrics.
Who could resist being told (in his song The Chinaman) "This song is ridiculous, the worse that's in the land, but it's marvellous the trash that the public stands."
