 Harry Roy (12 January 1900 – 1 February 1971) was a British dance band leader and clarinet player from the 1920s to the 1960s. He performed several songs with suggestive lyrics including "My Girl's Pussy" (1931),[1] and "She Had to Go and Lose It at the Astor" (1939).[2][3][4]

 Roy was born Harry Lipman in Stamford Hill, London, England, and began to study clarinet and alto saxophone at the age of 16. He and his brother Sidney formed a band which they called the Darnswells, with Harry on saxophone and clarinet and Sidney on piano. During the 1920s they performed in several prestige venues such as the Alhambra and the London Coliseum, under names such as the Original Lyrical Five and the Original Crichton Lyricals. They spent three years at the Café de Paris, and toured South Africa, Australia and Germany.

Les Paul & Mary Ford

Ok we are still in the land of "Electronics" Guitars to be exact not like the "Synthesiser's" on the post below !!!...Two of the finest "Mary" Singin' and "Les" playin' !!!...I believe they were the first to devolop "Multi Track" recording !!

09. The Best Things In Life Are Free.mp3

Jean Jacques Perrey

Looking for something different and this one has caught my eye !!..not had any "Electronic" Music" and also thought that it was called "Mood Indigo" and did a double check and Lo ! and behold ! Its a play on the title... "MOOG" instead of MOOD !.....Its a great L/P because it incorporates some real melody's that are easy recognisable and doesn't go over the top with the "Electronics"..well worth a listen to !!!... and it a "Fun" one too !!! ..Definitely a "Luigi" recommend !!

07 - Gossipo Perpetuo.mp3

The Peddlers

I don't know why these guy's were not more popular than they were...maybe they were and I didn't know...just wish I had heard of them sooner !!...They do some great cover versions of songs that could have been hits in there own right !!.....This record shop is coming up with some real gems....Another Luigi's recommendation !!! won't be sorry !!!...Thanks John !!!
Time now to click these heels and get back to "Leicester"....and see if I can move these posts so they make sense !!!!!!
