Gracie Fields
- Live (VAR94)

Gracie Fields was one of the top Variety entertainers of the 20th Century. On this CD are captured live recordings from some of her performances. These include Live at the Holborn Empire (from the alternative Regal Zonophone set), and a unique recording made when she opened the Kilburn State in 1937. To celebrate her four millionth record, HMV arranged a special lunch at The Trocadero in London. The Invitations were sent out in the form of a special record, and the menu at the lunch was also in the form of a record, both of which are included in this CD. A private recording made in 1960 (possibly by her manager) shows her vitality even towards the end of her long career.
