Jimmy Harper: The Biggest Aspidistra In The World (PVG)

Books | Piano, Vocal & Guitar

Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Comedienne Gracie Fields was born over a chip shop but at the time of this song, the height of her popularity, had become the highest-paid performer in Britain and the highest paid film actress in the world. A star of music hall and cinema for many years, Fields had a big hit with The Biggest Aspidastra In The World in the late 1930s, so he kept it in her repertoire ever after. One of the composers, Tommy Connor, has excellent form as a composer of novelty songs as he also penned I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.The jaunty melody is charming, though Fields herself often favoured a more declamatory reading of the words. The sheet music includes Guitar tablature.
