The Two Bobs were two Americans who visited the UK on holiday, and
stayed on to pursue a major career in the British Music Hall. Their
early recordings are in the ragtime vein, but as the years went by they
revised their act with the later songs being more of a comic nature.
Top of these later songs must be Paddy McGinty's Goat
reproduced here in its 1917 form.
An early double act, they could both play the
piano and sing and would take each in turns.
