Jay Laurier
Let's have a Jolly Good Cry (CDR39)

Don't let the title put you off - these are not sad songs. Jay Laurier had a wide ranging career from Solo Comic to Shakespearian actor. The songs on this CD include some of Jay Laurier's stage patter, which gives a period feel to the performances. A contemporary reviewer of Jay's song Swim, Sam, Swim claimed: This big voiced comedian whose claims to coyness are sometimes belied by the breezy virile voice "gets over" smartly in this diverting ditty. You'll laugh.
That's what they thought about Jay Laurier then and hopefully you will too today, some 90 years later.
