Our sleeve note describes this as a sort of Golden Jubilee celebration of that decade of the immediate post-war years a time when Cowards output of new dramatic work seemed to lose popular appeal, and when his polymathic talents led to his emergence, To my own and everyone elses astonishment, as a highly successful cabaret entertainer, uniquely performing his own material. No finer example of this aspect of Cowards career probably exists than these, his very last British recordings made with Wally Stott and his orchestra and Norman Hackforth. They seem to offer a perfectly expressed envoi to his British roots. Also on this disc we have, available again for the first time in fifty years, a remarkable LP made by the American singer Harry Noble, displaying an immaculate understanding of Cowards songs.
