Windsor Davies and Don Estelle Singing Whispering Grass
Tags: Grass, Whispering
They were characters on a 70’s comedy set in WW2 Burma, ‘Ain’t Half Hot Mum…’
The wee guy’s character was ‘Lofty…’
Perfect Mr Davies
The Inkspots sang on the Dow Commercial. They were good. Lofty (Don Estelle) is much, much better, and I like the Inkspots. Look at how Don is putting the song across. He has a gift. Close your eyes and listen to him sing. Excellent singer.
What a great voice! Excellent presentation! Such a cute smile. This guy just became my favorite singer. Thanks for uploading this – I never knew this guy existed. He blows the Inkspots away with his rendition of “Whispering Grass”. You people across the pond had a great treasure in Lofty. Again, thanks so much for uploading this – I watch it all the time and have sent it around.
Watch it every day my friend. It’s right up there next to vitamins in my morning routine
I think this is the 70th time I’ve watched this video in the past 2 weeks, I love the dancing lol (tbh, the whole thing is nice)
I have an LP somewhere in my collection called “Sing Lofty”. This song isn’t on there but there are others which are as good. Don Estelle had a good singing voice. He does a great version of Paper Doll. Shame how we allowed him to just fade away like that. He was always well liked and deserved much better. At least here, for a while, he was top of the world. Not bad, that.
I once spent a very long day with Windsor, it was during rehearsals for the Generation Game. He was a lovely guy and we fell about laughing all day – and what a pure voice Don Estelle had. The first person to acquire the record that I know was record producer Pete Waterman prior to is rise to fame, Pete raved about it as did everyone who heard it. Wonderful days!
Thes characters are from the wonderful BBC TV series `IT AINT HALF HOT MUM` Don Estelle` hada lovely voice
I discovered this video by accident and was blown away. I have always loved the song and have Sandy Denny’s cover of it. Anyway, this lead to some googling about Don Estelle, an interesting life, but a little sad the last several years.
I have a pair of shorts like Don Estelle used to wear,my pals call them “my loftys”
just brilliant fantastic memories,,all the best Mac
if you are of an age you watched this every thursday without fail andloved it as I still do,if only the PC brigade would sod off they would re run them again,land of hope and glory…..shadddd upppppp,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,you know what I mean
Don Estelle had a beautiful voice. Thank you for the memories.
So nice to watch again. Classic!
Don’t cry for me, Sergeant-Major…
Windsor Davies will be 82 this year.
Quality they don’t make them like these two any more.
for anyone’s who’s interested , every now and then don estelle’s cd’s come up for sale on ebay . i’ve just managed to get a hold of 2 of them from france .
You’re a little mistaken, friend…It’s Windsor Davies, and he’s the taller one with a mustache, Don Estelle is the short chap with glasses Hope this clears it up for you!
It is a bueatiful cover of an old song.
Which person is Don and which person is Davie
Awesome!!!! What a voice Don!!!
