8 track

1977 8-track “100 Golden Greats” by Max Bygraves.

Max Bygraves seems to have been quite well known on the other side of the pond. I had never heard of him until I picked up this tape. For free btw, along with the others. He was a comedian, an actor, and, although I cannot play this tape to attest to it 100%, evidence would suggest, he was also a fairly prolific singer. He only died this past August. The Guardian headlines his obit  with  “Sentimental singer and cheery comedian who became a star at the London Palladium“.
