Historical Notes

Fred Coyne was a minor music hall singer about whom opinions differ. Arthur Roberts recalls him at Turnham's, later the Metropolitan, Edgware Road, singing "one of the dullest songs that it has ever been my displeasure to listen to in my life;" Jacqueline Bratton dubs him "a minor Lion Comique and comic vocalist of steady, if not phenomenal, popularity;" Harry Preston remembers him as "very dashing in top-hat and frock coat"; while Charles Coborn lists him among "the leading lights of the music hall stage" and admits to using some of his songs in the early part of his own career. http://www.musichallstudies.co.uk/buy_online.php?mag=2
