5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!, 30 Oct 2011
I agree with Roy Hudd. This is one of the best showbiz autobiogs. Arthur Askey's infectious brand of humour shines through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish blarney, 29 July 2011
This review is from: Happy Ever After [DVD] (DVD)
In the west of Ireland the squire passes away. He was respected by the locals because he treated them so well. Rent free cottage, blind eye turned to poacher, etc. Enter David Niven, a smooth, oily money grabbing Yank, the heir. Add some romantic interludes and you get a good old farce as the locals decide the Yank must go!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 29 July 2011
Hancock fans will like this box set. Quaint 1950s sets, ad libs and hancock's fluffed lines all add to the value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liverpool nostalgia, 1 Nov 2010
Different from Dream Palaces of Liverpool by the same author, this is a much more descriptive view of the cinemas. Architecture is described in great detail, plus more elaborate histories than in the previous book. Fascinating stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars HIts I never knew about., 25 Jun 2010
Like 99.9% of popular music lovers, I thought the Hit Parade in Britain began with Al Martino in 1952.
However, this disc contains all the Number 1 hits (sheet music sales) from Radio Luxembourg from August 1945 through to November 1952 when Here in My Heart became the top selling record. By now the radiogram was replacing the piano in our parlours, and 78 rpm discs were beginning to outsell sheet music.
This 3 cd set is a reflection of those post war years when music acted as a pick-me-up in those austere days. A great collection for the nostalgics and music historians.
