5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC TV:BRILLANT MUSIC:LOST GENUIS 3 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
I first saw "The Singing Detective" back in the 80's and even as a teenage punk I fell in love with the music, this was my first taste of "JAZZ".Over the years I dabbled in "Jazz" becoming a long time fan but only when I saw "The Singing Detective" again on DvD was I impulsed to by this boxset.All the songs from the Tv series are here plus many more in a same style from the 40's and 50's OVER 3 hours of pure pleasure.Perfect for those evenings in.
One of the best buys this year from Amazon so far and at a very good price, a must have for all "The Singing Detective" fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value! 6 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Loved the Singing Detective series from the '80's on TV, and the music on this album is all of that and more. Classic songs by classic artists, many of whom are long forgotten now but the songs are still fabulous. A good song remains a good song despite how long ago it was writen, and this album is full of those - many of which I'd never heard before. Anyone who loves old films, especially musicals, will love this. Bing Crosby, you remain forever cool !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic music 12 Dec 2009
By Bill Crawford VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a 41 year old with a very varied taste in music, I have owned this previously on vinyl (which I got shortly after watching some of the Dennis Potter series). I loved the music then (in my 20s?) so was determined to buy this on CD (I no longer play vinyl). This is great music from the 50s and 60s (I think)- suitable for all ages - sure it's not exactly Lady GaGa or the Black Eyed Peas, but brilliant songs to sing along to. Go on, give it a try - you might just love it.
