Cannon & Ball.

Now we have an English comedy Duo from the 80's popular on TV with their "Cannon & Ball" show !! with all the comic duo's shades of "Abbott & Costello" "Laurel & Hardy" Lewis & Martin" was all incorporated in their shows, and this L/P shows that once the comic stints are over both have decent voices...nothing to get exited about but still easy on the ear !!...The "Diamond" in the bundle of songs is definitely "Let Me Rock You"....don't know which one has the "Gravely"voice but it should have been featured more than it was !!!
