Charlie Higgins was one of the most popular comedians featured on record during the early 1930s. Although his records sold well at the time, some of the originals are now very hard to find, but all of Charlie Higgin's most popular song numbers are featured on this CD. His humour is full of vigour and travels well up to the present time, and can be thoroughly recommended as giving a good feel for popular comedy in the 1930s.
