Arthur

mullard.jpg

Arthur Mullard of London.   “Arthur was a fifties and sixties British actor (he usually played the heavy) and sort of comedian…well known for his gravelly, cockney voice and boyish good looks.   His album, a collection of strange cockney monologues and painfully rendered songs (he sings the Beatles “Yesterday” as “Yus-today”) is a masterwork of dreadfulness.   The cover says it all.”   (Contributed by LP cover lover, Jay Strange)
