This is a wonderful collection of lovingly restored songs from the remarkable George Formby. The ukulele almost jumps out of the speakers!
“I received my order promptly. It arrived in pristine condition. It was carefully packaged and clearly labelled. The quality of the discs is perfect! Your name is certainly not hyperbole. I am too young to have seen George Formby perform, but I feel as if I have him in my house now! I will certainly be ordering more discs from you. Formby is wonderful. I hope you will feature more British treasures such as Bowlly and Formby.” David A, UK

COVER NOTES

George Formby was born on the 26th of May, 1904, in one of the poorer areas of Wigan, in Lancashire. His father was at that time a variety artist, who was soon to become one of the greatest stars of the Edwardian music hall. George Formby Senior (real name James Booth) had no illusions about the life of a performer. The years of struggle to get to the top, and having got there, the constant travelling, which meant returning home for only a few days at a time, the punishing schedule of theatre tours which exacerbated his severe bronchial condition. George was actively discouraged from following in a theatrical career. ‘One fool in the family is enough’ said his father, and at the age of seven, George was sent away to train as a jockey. Not surprisingly, he was desperately unhappy to be pushed out of the family, and made many attempts to escape home.
