This CD revives golden memories of my school days and the time when listening to Tony Brent from the Radio Ceylon was the ultimate in pleasure. Among the songs, I did miss the absence of: Two Innocent Hearts, Pledging My Love, Little Serenade and In My Little Room; but even so, this collection needs to be cherished. All the music lovers of 50s ought to have this.

Tony was one of our biggest stars of the 1950Õs and it seems unjust that his many fans are rewarded with just one meagre CD. Although itÕs an excellent album weÕre left dangling in mid-air and frustrated, just craving for more. As we all know, Tony recorded so many outstanding songs and I wonder why one of his biggest hits,ÒWalking To MissouriÓ wasnÕt included. Other big favourites were of course - ÒWorried Mind - Two Innocent Hearts - Hearts Of Stone - Make It SoonÓ etc.... far too many more to mention. Most people will also be aware of TonyÕs close association with ÒBritainÕs Blonde BombshellÓ - Billie Anthony. ItÕs him we have to thank for persuading the 5ft bundle of energy to embark on a singing career. They shared the same manager, toured the same circuits and often shared the same bill. For those who are anxious to hear more of Tony, he can now be heard duetting with Billie (for the first time on CD) - a somewhat less familiar title called ÒI Get So LonelyÓ. It comes from her own 33 track album and follows in TonyÕs footsteps, called ÒThe Magic Of Billie AnthonyÓ. It commences with her first recording in 1953 and works through to her her final recording in 1960. A good buy and highly recommended.

My husband has been wanting a CD by Tony Brent for ages. Thought it was a bit expensive - but my husband is worth it!

This was a really good fun buy. I remember this guy from my youth ( a long time ago lol ) and his music had me and a half dozen friends rocking around the room in an impromptu party. Many thanks for the fun we had

Nostalgic Tony Brent 24 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I enjoyed listening to Tony Brent on CD and would like to see another CD with all the missing songs e.g. Why ask for the Moon, Forever my darling, Let's fall in love, Marie, Wonderba, Butterfly, In my Little Room. The message from his daughter was touching. Perhaps she has the LPs and EPs which could be reproduced with the best sound production on CD. Hope Amazon takes note of this and releases more. Thanks for the opportunity for sharing my appreciation of Tony Brent's songs.

A good start 23 May 2000
By Manohar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This selection was compiled by EMI for the UK market. They have done a great job with this album in resurrecting some of TB's music. The selection is very listenable & proves Tony's fits into the Dean Martin & Al Martino style. I am certain that baby boomers in the UK, Australia, Canada, India & Sri Lanka who are familiar with this artist's repertoire would like to see many of his more familiar songs that have been omitted from this CD, released on a follow-up album.

MORE OF TONY 3 Sept. 2000
By DARRYL ISAAKS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While living in Sri Lanka I, like most Sri Lankans at that time, was a fan of Tony Brent. After migrating to Australia, I searched for many years to get a CD of Tony's music and was overjoyed when this was released. However, much to my disappointment my favourite song LITTLE SERENADE is not included in this collection. PLEASE release another CD with all the songs that were not included in this one. Tony's fabulous voice, clear diction and swinging singing style are still admired by those around the world who knew his music. Where is Tony Brent now? Would love to say HELLO.

Memories, memories, memories 28 Jan. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tony Brent was born at Byculla in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, where I come from originally. In those days there was no commercial radio or TV in India (everything was Govt. controlled and western pop music was frowned upon) and so we all pubescent teens used to tune in to Radio Ceylon on shortwave frequencies (using valve sets) to listen to our favorite western pop songs. The Hit Parade sponsored by Binaca was the highlight each week and in those days Tony Brent always had a number on the top ten ladder. In the early 50s he made a big hit with "The Game of Love" (I used to own a 78 RPM record), we were always singing it at picnics and boy scout camps. Another favorite of mine was "Cindy Oh Cindy". Unfortunate my other favorites, like "Two Innocent Hearts" and "Little Serenade" are not included on this CD. I wonder why? It would not hurt to bring out a new CD with ALL his top hits on one great album. Will Amazon.com take note please?? Tony Brent's contemporary in the U.S. was Pat Boone, then Elvis hit the scene followed years later by the Beatles, the Who and The Rolling Stones all at the same time....but that is another story. I wonder if there is a Tony Brent fan club....
