LEGENDS: AL BOWLLY - DVD
Nearly 70 years after his death, Al Bowlly is still fondly remembered as the most popular vocalist in Britain during the 1930s. Like Crosby, he showcased a huge range of material and was a true international recording artist. He was born in Mozambique to Greek and Lebanese parents and arrived in London (via Berlin) in 1927 as a member of Fred Elizalde's orchestra. In the early 1930s, Bowlly went solo and worked mainly with Ray Noble and Lew Stone to record over 500 songs. In 1934, he travelled to New York where he was hugely successful. In 1936 he returned to England, appearing mainly (but not exclusively) with his own band, the Radio City Rhythm Makers. He also joined with Jimmy Messini as Radio Stars with Two Guitars. He was killed when a German bomb exploded outside his apartment in 1941.
