Hamilton Hill - When The Boys Go Marching By (CDR44)

Hamilton Hill CD
Hamilton Hill, born in Australia, came to England in 1901 and became one of the recording pioneers. His style was more that of a concert singer - he didn't dress in character but as an innovation he accompanied his music hall performances with associated magic lantern slides. This selection of his recordings include his first London disc from 1903.
Included as a bonus is the song most often associated with him Goodbye Dolly Gray, here sung by the contemporary singer Leo Stormont.
