"Born Alfred Hawthorn Hill (January 21, 1924/1925 - April 20, 1992), in Southampton, Benny Hill was a prolific comic British actor. In fact, he was one of the most universally recognized British comedians. He worked compulsively and had only a few friends, although colleagues who knew him closely insist that he was never lonely, but was content with his own company. He never married, although he did propose to two women, one the daughter of a British writer, and was rejected by both. He never owned his own home, nor even a car, instead preferring to rent a small flat in Teddington, a convenient walking distance to the Teddington Studios where he taped the one-off one-hour episodes of his television programme, The Benny Hill Show."
Found at a boot sale last year this budget "Music For Pleasure" 1971 release contains Hill's big U.K. hit "Ernie" and other comic songs as featured on his TV show. Words and music by Benny Hill. Arranged and conducted by Harry Robinson.
