It's Electric - Music Hall and Variety from the 1930's - VAR26

It's Electric CD
During the 1930s, concert promoters and record companies enjoyed a brief revival of interest in the older music hall performers. Fortunately for us today, this resulted in a number of fine electrical recordings of Artists such as Tom Leamore and Marie Kendall - thus It's Electric.
This CD combines these with other classic recordings such as Charles Penrose's Laughing Policeman and Lupino Lane's Lambeth Walk, and two rare Marie Lloyd Jnr. tracks. By popular demand, Tommy Trinder's renditions of Champagne Charlie and The Man on the Flying Trapeze are included.
