Ragtime - Tommy Burton and The Sporting House Club

Tommy Burton is, and has been for many years, a living legend on the West Midlands and Northern music scene. He has that stamp that separates a star from a performer: individuality.

As a ragtime pianist of the first magnitude, Tommy Burton's reputation is now solidly established. When this 33-year-old giant ambles over to the piano, it is like Guy Fawkes' Day. An occasion for musical fireworks.

Side One

When You Wore A Tulip
Every Street's a Boulevard
Is It True What They Say
April Showers
All The World Is Waiting
I Want To Say Hello

Side Two

Lime House Blues
Button Up Your Overcoat
12th Street Rag
I Want To Be Happy
Sit Right Down
Play A Simple Melody

WMD 222 - 1974
