: : Yes, Dennis made quite a few records on the RCA Victor label during the 1940's and early 50's.
: : While many of these records were Irish-themed (including his famous "Clancy Lowered The Boom"), he also recorded romantic ballads and upbeat non-Irish oriented songs.
: : It's a funny thing about Dennis...On many old radio series, the vocalist's number could be something of a boring (and sometimes even PAINFUL) chore to sit through. However, Dennis was a cut above your standard comedy show vocalist, and most of his musical numbers are a genuine treat to listen to.
: I have to disagree with enjoying Dennis sing his songs and often times try to skip over them as well as his predecesor Kenny Baker.They were both fine singers (I find Dennis a better performer than Kenny)but the songs are too old fashion for me.Dennis's real talent as far as I am concerned is in his voice impersonations ie. Ronald Coleman and his comical quips.
In my humble opinion... I think it depends on the song being sung... there are times when I'll skip Dennis' song... and times when I'll listen
