Al Bowlly was a singer from the 1930's, born in Mozambique, raised in South Africa, and popular in Britain. He was killed by a parachute mine exploding outside his apartment in London during the Blitz.
Great example of that old '30s style of jazz-pop that isn't even really attempted much these days. I don't know if anyone reading this likes the style of music enough to download it but fuck you this is my intertube i will post whatever i like. And i like this. That's all the endorsement you should need. Plus, it has that fantastic old gritty vinyl record static.
