Description


The origins of the novelty song, at least on the British side of the Atlantic, lie in the music-hall tradition which began in the mid-Victorian era. Music hall consisted of a mixture of comedy, popular songs, variety entertainment and specialty acts. The twentieth century brought a new generation of music-hall performers. These included Harry Champion with songs such as Boiled Beef And Carrots , George Formby, accompanied by his ukulele with When I m Cleaning Windows and many more included here on this excellent 3 disc compilation, guaranteed to raise a smile!
