Notes

This record doesn’t originate from Hull, but the second side is a tribute to one of Hull’s most famous daughters – Amy Johnson – and on that basis we thought it only right to allow this record into our Archive!

Chris Hall was a pseudonym of the Manchester-born baritone Thomas Greenhalgh (also a.k.a. John Thorne). Greenhalgh was born in 1893 and died in 1939, nine years after the release of this charming homage to Hull’s greatest aviator.
