Time Gentlemen Please!

A rather battered LP on the budget Saga label from 1969. Mine Hosts- Don & Betty Lowes and vocals by various people including Joe Gibbons, Siggy Jackson , Bill Parry and Lenny Walker. A quaint reminder of what pubs used to be like before karaoke and juke boxes took over.

The sleeve notes say -

"From the times of "Greensleeves" and wandering mintrels in tudor taverns to the microphones and amplifications in the modern local, music has always played an integral part in consolidating the Englishmen's enjoyment of his pint of ale.
We present on this record a selection of 'pub' favourites that have stood the test of time and whose lyrics and melodies are firmiliar to the tongue and memorable to the ear, from "The Great Big Shame" written in 1895 to our most recent choice "I've Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts of 1948 vintage."

Don & Betty Lowes - Don't Dilly Dally On The Way

Don & Betty Lowes - You Made Me Love You

Don & Betty Lowes - Down At The Old Bull And Bush

Don & Betty Lowes - When I Leave The World Behind

Don & Betty Lowes - I've Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts

Don & Betty Lowes - On Mother Kelly's Doorstep
