"You are, I hope, a connoisseur of the Hurdy-gurdy?"
Here is an excellent example of this "terrible contraption" - played to a standard that Mr Hound (and his housemates!) could only dream of - by the hugely talented Mr Nigel Eaton.
If It Wasn't For The 'Ouses In Between
One of Professor Lyons' favourites ditties.
Written by Edgar Bateman & George Le Brun (1894) for the
Music Hall star Gus Elen.
Here sung by the great man himself.
BLOOD RED ROSES
A regular victim of Professor Lyons & Mr Hound's musical endeavors.
Here, however, is a splendid rendition of the famous sea shanty, as sung by Mr. A. L. Lloyd.
(Music - Leonard Bernstein, Lyrics -Stephen Sondheim)
From Tom's favourite musical WEST SIDE STORY (1961)
Sadly, one can only imagine Su Lin's interpretation ....
(Irvin Berlin - 1954)
Here performed by Rosemary Clooney & Vera Ellen (though Rosemary Clooney sung both parts )
from the film 'White Christmas
DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER
Here sung by Dame Shirely Bassey
When the boundaries are crossed: when the Darkness creeps towards your door: when the Nightmare slips into the waking hour: we are the ones who put things right.
