Good Choice!

As a big fan of Joyce Grenfell's work Maureen Lipman captures this piece by making it her own but so much of Joyce just hanging in the air. Thoroughly enjoyed this and a nice easy listen with a giggle not far away

I am totally biased

Maureen has got such a talent to mimic the voice of Joyce Grenfell, that it is hard to tell who is who, however, when Maureen sang a 'Joycie' song, you could here Maureen voice throughout, but that is nothing, compared to a chance to hear Nancy Astors niece-Joyce Grenfell!!
