JIMMY MESENE - The Sweetest Sweetheart Of All

Jimmy received many plaudits for his vocal spot during The Georgians stage shows. His voice almost operatic at times - and instantly recognisable. Come the war Gonella disbanded The Georgians. Jimmy teamed up with Al Bowlly as a double-act. They were billed as “The Radio Stars with Two Guitars”. 5 of their recordings are featured here - including the 2 sides from their last session in April 1941. Just over two weeks after this session, Al Bowlly was killed in the Blitz. Jimmy made his last recording with Mantovani a in March 1946.
