Paddy Roberts (Re-UP)

Another EP found in a charity shop last year featuring whimsical songs about subjects not normally sung about in that strange olde worlde voice of his.

"Paddy Roberts (1910 - 1975) was a popular songwriter, having previously been a lawyer and a pilot (serving with the RAF in World War II). He was born in South Africa and died in the United Kingdom. He enjoyed success with a number of songs in the 1950s and 1960s and wrote songs for several films. He released several LPs and EPs of his own material, often featuring what were, for the time, slightly risqué lyrics."

All new ones to me. Wonderful. I used to car boot.....but I found it took up so much of my time raking around all that junk just to find a gem like this.
As you get older I have found that I must choose carefully ....on how to waste what time you have left.
Thanks for saving me that time.

Thanks Bernard- glad I am saving you some time! I like nothing better than raking through boxes of tat on a Sunday morning! I very rarely find things like this though it must be said despite evidence to the contrary!

Thanks Michael, Recordings by Paddy Roberts are like gold dust.There's only one or two in the record library.
P.S. The George Van Dusen records have been aired on Angel Radio.
All the best
