  Nick Lucas (Born August 22nd 1897- Died July 28th 1982)


Lucas was a vocalist/guitarist/banjoist whose easy-going style made him
a massive record seller in the late 20s and early 30s.
Initially in vaudeville, he played clubs before becoming banjoist with the Dan Russo-
Ted Fio Rito Oriole Orchestra in the early 20s and was known as the "Singing Troubador".

Lucas signed to Brunswick and had his first hit with "My Best Girl" in 1925.
This was followed by a string of best-sellers through to 1931.
He appeared in the Broadway musical Showgirl in 1929 along with Ruby Keeler,
Jimmy Durante and the Duke Ellington Orchestra.
That same year he featured in two early "talkies" Gold Diggers Of  Broadway and
Show Of Shows.

During the 30s he settled in Hollywood making movie shorts and playing clubs.
In 1934, he headed a dance band for a while and by 1937 was resident on the Al Pearce radio show.
Tiny Tim's late 60s version of "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" rekindled interest in Lucas and in 1974 he sang on the soundtrack of the film The Great Gatsby.
He made TV appearances into the mid 1970ís and
continued to perform through the early 1980ís at age 82.

This CD includes his 3rd group of recordings for Brunswick.
Made at the peak of his career, they feature his crooning vocal style
with his jazz guitar accompaniment.
