To my surprise - and for such a low price - this CD set is consistently excellent. Within the 60 songs there are no real duds.

Most importantly for me, these are authentic recordings from the time and the sound is very good. I share another reviewer's disappointment that there is no further information on the recordings, specifically dates of recording, but that won't stop me from giving the package 5 stars. I am 66 years old and this collection contains most of the familiar favourites plus others I found myself knowing once I got into the chorus of the song. I am very satisfied with my purchase !

Considering most if not all these recordings are going on for 100 years old the sound is inevitably 'vintage,' but that is only to be expected. What loses a star is the total absence of any documentation! Far better to have charged another pound and included a booklet which would have greatly enhanced the set.

Lovely to hear original recordings of theses songs, our church is having a flower festival based on WW1 songs, so this was good research material, people never remember the verses only the chorus, the verses are well worth listening too.
Be great for schools doing projects on the Great War.

The collectionof songs from this era is very good and is bringing back vivid memories for my mother who is busy with the Women's Institute getting ready to celebrate their centenary next year. One slight criticism is that there should have been a bibliography included to explain the songs and list the lyrics in full. Perhaps a re-issue with these included will be a best seller.

The songs are recorded from the original - I found some of them rather difficult to listen to as they are not too clear - I want to use them for some events we are providing and would have preferred a recording that we could just have playing in the background - but this will not be possible to do with most of the songs on the cd as they are just too crackly etc. Otherwise they are obviously a true listening experience from back in the day.

I should have read all reviews before purchasing this item. As one review states - all appear to be original recordings and very difficult to listen to. I had wanted to use this for exercise session as part of commemorative event, but sound not good enough.. Has anyone purchased C.D. of music of this era which is better quality?

This is a collection of copies from original 78 recordings from WW1. For myself it is full of nostalgia and just what I hoped for. Most of the tracks are remarkably clear but some few are poor. It includes a number of songs from stage shows of the time wnich is quite proper as these songs were sung by the Tommies who in many cases rewrote the words. At the price it is an absolute givaway. It also includes Ameriican songs and a number of Band tracks. The quality of sound will not suit everyone. It really does suit me.
