Leslie Sarony was hugely popular during the 1930s, and wrote and recorded many songs. Leslie Sarony was the King of the nonsense song, such as Why did the Sparrow leave the Straight and Narrow? and Let me carry your Bag to Bagdad, Dad. The title song Grandpa Liked It is one of those which leaves a permanent impression on the memory - once heard never forgotten.
On this CD Leslie Sarony appears with Leslie Holmes on Shut the Door (they're coming in the Window) . He is also joined by Jack Hylton's band on some tracks. And is that Charles Penrose you can hear on the last track?
