David Kossof


David Kossof sings a few cockney and music-hall songs in the role of Alf Larkin that he made famous in the early years of independent television in the late 50's. The series ,"The Larkins", ran for 40 episodes from 1958 to 1964 and included Peggy Mount as Ma Larkin. This Oriole Lp from 1960 is full of songs made by an earlier generation of vaudevillians like Albert Chevalier and Florrie Forde etc. He is joined by the Mike Sammes Singers and create a typical rowdy east end pub sing-along.

Not forgetting his famous, and tragic, son - Paul. The guitarist with Free.

Thats right spice - I meant to add that as postscript. I think David did a lot of campaigning for drug related charities after that.
