5.0 out of 5 stars A DELIGHTFUL COSMOPOLITAN FLAVOUR 28 Mar 2011
By Barry McCanna TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is the follow-up to Bygone Days' brilliant CD "Journey into Melody" (BYD 77058) which presented 29 radio favourites from 1949 to 1959. This falls slightly later, from 1952 to 1960, and the music is every bit as vibrant. In fact, if you're not prepared for what's coming, the opening track will jolt you upright! These orchestral pieces are the light music equivalent of what Sir Adrian Boult used to call "Lollipops". They are played by Stanley Black, Frank Chacksfield, Frank Cordell, Ron Goodwin, Max Jaffa, Joe Loss, Mantovani, Ray Martin, George Melachrino, Tony Osborne, Norrie Paramor, Cyril Stapleton, and Sidney Torch, all of whose names were a byword for excellence. There is a delightfully cosmopolitan flavour to the mix, sound quality is superb, and I cannot recommend this too highly.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those of us of a certain age (I'm 74) this brings back many joyous memories of a time when melody mattered. Well worth adding to your collection if you feel the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars Evokes childhood memories 14 May 2013
By Jude
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always had a passion for light music. It reminds me of the sixties, when a child, watching my Mum cooking in the warm kitchen, listening to the radio that played this kind of music. There are a few tracks I don't care for, hence the reason I gave it a rating of four, but my intention is not to put anyone off, as it is a beautiful cd.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A nostalgic walk down the years of the music everyone over a certain age will remember but can't quite name that tune!
