Review - Dan Burt 'A Little Bit of Cucumber'

A mighty, marvelous, mirthful, musical masterpiece made mainly by a mustachioed musician in Macclesfield. . . . Dan also includes well known sing-a-long songs . . . I loved joining in on these tracks. Dan also plays two beaut barn dance tunes . . . They make you want to get up and 'trip the light fantastic'.

The comedy songs are what make this CD. The funniest track was 'So I Put on My Coat and Went Home' which deals with pugilism, dairying, spiritualism and the theatre. . . . I really enjoyed this CD . . .  I can recommend it. It is full of memories and takes you back to a bygone age.

NOTE: . . . I was only sent the first [CD] to review. Now I shall never know what is in Part 2 'The Hole in the Elephant's Bottom'. Maybe I should be grateful!
