Ronald Frankau - Upper Class Love (VAR4)

Ronald Frankau CD
Ronald Frankau is remembered today for his series of somewhat risqué 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 “Introduction” 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.
