Melodies of the Music Hall (CDR38)

A Music Hall Sampler CD
Meeting a long felt need, this CD provides instrumental versions of many famous Music Hall Songs. The first tracks have arrangements for Fairground Organ and Barrel Piano played in a traditional robust style.
The next track gives us a flavour of the popular 1930's accordeon bands, and is followed by some fine playing by Reginald Dixon on the theatre organ at the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool.
An orchestral selection from The London Palladium leads on to the composer Leslie Stuart playing a number of his own compositions.
The final 36 tracks have Charlie Kunz playing Music Hall Choruses in his typically relaxed style; each tune having an individual track number for ease of reference. The tunes are ideally pitched for singing and words to these choruses are included with the CD, so there is no excuse for not singing along. Why not try out the Sample Chorus below for yourself?

Following In Father's Footsteps
(Written and composed by E. W. Rogers)

I'm following in father's footsteps;
I'm following the dear old dad.
He's just in front with a fine big gal,
So I thought I'd have one as well.
I don't know where he's going,
But when he gets there I'll be glad!
I'm following in father's footsteps
Yes, I'm following the dear old dad!
