George Crowther - Father Was a Young Man Then - VAR105

George Crowther - Father Was a Young Man Then CD
George Crowther appeared on the Halls around 1913, but he is remembered today for his series of recordings made in the period 1929 to 1932. He adopted the manner of the earlier Music Hall star Billy Williams, by including asides to the audience and vigorous laughter. The recordings, made during the Depression Years when Britain's world trade fell by 50%, have an air of optimism which applies even today.
