George Melly – Vocals. Alex Welsh, Mick Mulligan – Trumpet. Roy Crimmins, Frank Parr – Trombone. The EPs includeGeorge Melly with Mick Mulligan’s Band, George Melly Sings Doom, George Melly Sings the Blues, and Abdul Abulbul Amir – George Melly Sings Songs of Frank Crumit. Melly might be called a Renaissance man, given his interest in art (especially surrealism) and writing (author of several autobiographies as well as other books, besides working as a film and TV critic). But his public image was of a hard-drinking, garishly-dressed singer known as Good Time George. The album ends with four songs written or adapted by Frank Crumit, a singer who specialised in novelty songs which were often humorous or whimsical. Crumit is barely remembered today, although I listened to some of his recordings on 78 rpm records in my formative years.
George and Diana Melly had a country retreat, the Tower, at Scethrog in the Brecon Beacons, between 1971 and 1999. This was somewhere Melly could escape the jazz world and indulge his love of fishing on the River Usk. However, jazz followed him to Wales and this led to a series of celebrated performances in the area and in the South Wales valleys. George Melly Sings Doom (Cherry Red El ACMEM273CD) (2014). Compilation of Decca recordings.

Producer . awls of Lone Catalysts is also experiencing commercial success as a soloist in Europe and Japan.
What we have here is a terrific album of old jazz and blues standards given the Melly treatment and reworked beautifully, backed with top musicians. 4 people found this helpful.
