Gracie Fields - A Hot Pot Party - Windyridge (VAR17)

Gracie Fields CD
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. This CD includes many from those early years, sung in a broad Lancashire accent, as well as some of the later songs. Under-rated today for her earlier work, much of which has been unavailable for years, this CD should help to redress the balance.
