"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 endeavours.
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)
THE MAE & LU SONGBOOK
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 ...
