It has to be said that among the most unlikely ‘superstars’ the UK produced during the 20th Century was the gap-toothed, ukuleleplaying comedian, George Formby. George’s cheeky songs such as When I’m Cleaning Windows and Leaning On A Lamp-Post became a fixture of British popular culture, and sailed close to the wind with his suggestive lyrics. Enjoy this supreme compilation including Mr. Wu’s A Window Cleaner Now, Leaning On A Lamp Post and The Window Cleaner.
