Gracie Fields is remembered today as the singer of the song 'Sally'. In the earlier part of her career Gracie Fields was a top variety entertainer with a huge repertoire of comic songs.

Under-rated today for her earlier work, much of which has been unavailable for years, this CD should help to redress the balance.
