Ronald Frankau is remembered today for his series of somewhat risque songs which he performed with his accompanist Monte Crick. His style has been described as being a cross between Max Miller and Noel Coward, with a hint of Harry Fragson. The CD starts with a satirical apos;Introductionapos; from Ronald Frankau where he considers the lapses of taste and morality in the Entertainment world.
The songs, some considered somewhat shocking at the time, now give a fascinating and amusing insight into the mores of a certain class of society in the 1930s. 24 Tracks, electrically recorded between 1929 and 1940.
