Mr. Arthur Lloyd's Concert - The public have seldom had so good an opportunity of making acquaintance with the popular comic songs and singers of the day than was afforded by the concert given on Wednesday night, by Mr. Arthur Lloyd, assisted by a talented company of artists. That the somewhat unusual character of the entertainment was appreciated was abundantly shown by the crowded audience in all parts of the house. Mr. Arthur Lloyd's wide celebrity as a comic vocalist was the main feature of the attraction, and his varied and amusing performances were received with great applause, his genial humour, untinged by the slightest shade of coarseness, rendering him an immediate and general favourite. - Newcastle Chronicle. - Click here for the Arthur Lloyd Song Book which this review came from.
