• Short Summary

    A song by Raymond Newell about being a Tinker.

  • Description

    Raymond Newell sings us a song.

    Full title reads: "And now Pathe Pictorial presents Raymond Newell the celebrated Baritone of B.B.C. and West End fame in "The Song of the Tinker."

    Raymond sits in a countryside setting in the Pathe Studio. He wears some overalls and a battered hat. He has a bucket of coal in front of him from which smoke emerges - a brazier? He sings a song about being a Tinker. "Any pots, any pans, any kettles to mend?" etc. Raymond sings away, has a stretch, pokes his brazier, etc.

    Sounds like the Tinker is an amateur counsellor as well as a kettle fixer as one of the choruses is changed to "Any hearts, any lives, any bodies to mend?" He wants everyone to bring him their troubles and cares. He will heal them all with nothing to pay.

    End of the visuals missing - incomplete.
