This CD by Florrie Forde, complements the previous CD issue
of her songs on CDR5. Recorded electrically between 1929 and 1936 some fine chorus songs are included with a number of old favourites. Personal introductions by Florrie to "After the Ball" and "Goodbye Dolly Gray" lead us into the later compositions - some memorable, and some unforgettably catchy. Some sadness too, as "In the Mansion of Aching Hearts". Of course, no record of Florrie Forde would be complete without "Down at the Old Bull and Bush", and in the version here she introduces the song and the band joins in the Chorus. Great entertainment from Florrie Forde at the top of her profession.
