Max Bacon ( Requested Re-Up )

"Max was the larger-than-life drummer with the Ambrose Orchestra for many years, who also had a unique Jewish-style humour. Prior to joining Ambrose in late 1927, he had been with Leon van Straten's band in 1926 and also was briefly with Fred Elizalde's band (which seems to be made up of Ambrose musicians) and Al Starita's Kit-Cat band (probably a temporary substitute for Eric Little). He was a regular member of Ronnie Munro's band which recorded for Parlophone and Imperial from 1926 to 1929, and also with Arthur Lally's band at Decca in the early 1930s. His stint with Ambrose lasted until 1940 and his wry comments may be heard on a number of comedy titles, including the famous number "Cohen the Crooner (The Crosby of Mile-End)" which is extant on film. On leaving Ambrose, Max went into variety, and also acting, taking small parts in films and television shows."

Thanks very much for the third Max Bacon - Even A Crooner Must Eat. I have never heard this one before.

By the way, did you realise that the links to the Eddie Cantor soundtracks you posted back in September are still good?

Thanks for dropping by mel. Glad the max bacon tracks are appreciated. I guess eddie cantor is more popular than we imagine!
Must be a constant flow of downloaders to keep it available.
