SONGS OF MY YOUTH AND CHILDHOOD

I talked about Len's great baritone voice.  One song I remember him singing was "On the Road to Mandalay?   I've always regretted we never had the technology to record some of Len's singing.

Here is that song sung my Australian Peter Dawson.   Did you know that way back then that the road to Mandalay was the Irrawaddy River?  I only learned that fact when I listened to this the other day.

  1. My father also sang this too. Yeah, pretty badly, I'm afraid. Nice memories, though.

    ...and I join the chorus.."my father also sang this song"! Rather more tenor than baritone though. This is an excellent rendition! YAM xx

  3. I don't remember this at all, definitely before my time. The scenery in the clip is nice.
