Re-discover comedienne extraordinaire, Bea Lillie. What a welcome release by Sepia, a bold new music company dedicated to re-releasing all sorts of goodies from the good old days. London/Decca originally released an Evening with Beatrice Lillie on LP in 1959. This is such a welcome release - my old LP is so worn, but so loved for 50 years. Now I can retire it and enjoy Auntie Bea in wonderful digital sound. The album includes some of the most hilarious bits of Auntie Bea - Nanette, Maude, Rhythm, The Party's Over Now, Piccolo Marina (the laugh out loud story of Mrs. Wentworth Brewster) and the fall on the floor Folksong Cycle (replete with Bobbie socks and zither!). This is really top-notch entertainment and Sepia has again done a superb job in re-mastering a classic with marvelous notes and bonus tracks from Bea's later album Auntie Bea - who can forget Wind round my heart? So, remember don't forget her, although you've never met her, Auntie Bea, Auntie Bea, Auntie Bea. Trust me darlings, you will love this!
