Audio Book Review
My Old Man by John Major
This story advertises itself as a personal history of music hall. As such I was expecting to hear about music hall from the perspective of John Majors father (as indicated by the title of the book), with personal anecdotes, meetings and opinions. Or at least in-depth information about what his father actually did. Therefore, I was quite disappointed when his dad is only briefly mentioned on disc 9, and then talked about in a bit more detail on disc 11, out of 12!
I would say this is just a basic history of music hall, with few personal anecdotes at all throughout the book. However, for a fan of music hall history this is probably a good place to start researching as it does look at the main players throughout the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, as well as the changes that were undertaken through the period of music hall existence.
Thank you for looking
