Joe Brown – The Ukulele Album

The latest offering from the uke-playing rock & roller (often incorrectly described as a ‘Chirpy Cockney’, despite the fact he was born in Lincolnshire), is an entire album of songs arranged for ukulele. Also appearing are his daughter, Sam, & her band, the International Ukulele Club Of Sonning Common.

There’s an interesting mix of uke standards – including Formby’s When I’m Cleaning Windows; favourites such as I’ll See You In My Dreams; the Chas ‘n’ Dave singalong There’s No Pleasing You (actually Ain’t No Pleasing You); plus more unexpected numbers, including Pinball Wizard & Mr Blue Sky.

All the tunes are available for preview on YouTube. As my parents had a greengrocers shop in Sarf London, here’s my musatoid choice.
