Gus Elen, the music hall star, known as the Famous Coster Comedian, was a relative of mine, and I have just published his biography.
A Cockney at Work. The Story of Gus Elen and His Songs, comes with a CD of his original recordings with tracks arranged in the same, order that they are referred to in the story. His songs were performed as various East End characters, and where necessary the lyrics.
The British Music Hall’s review of the book, together with more information, and how to buy it, can be found at www.guselen.co.uk
