Format: Audio CD
Although this compilation stems from 1993, it is the one to go for (please don't be misled into buying any Sound of Yesteryear discs!). With 25 tunes it contains most of the great British Noble hits and a seven of his American recordings to boot (ASV have also compiled a whole disc of Noble's American recordings, only one of which is doubled here: Centenary Issue: 26 Original Mono Recordings 1935-1941). The disc also throws a favourable light on Noble's often underplayed jazzier side, with "You Ought to See Sally on Sunday" splashing hot solos all over the place (by Nat Gonella, Harry Berly, Lew Davis, Howard Jacobson, Laurie Payne and Freddy Gardner), and "After All You're All I'm After", which features a terrific ride-out with Freddy Gardner's big toned baritone putting paid to George T. Simon's unkind remark that Noble's (British band's) attempts at jazz often bordered on the comical. Some of the American band's best jazz sides are to be found here as well, such as "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans", "Dinah" with its steady building of excitement and some excellent guitar work by George van Eps, and "Bugle Call Rag" in which all the important soloists (including Glenn Miller on trombone, the aforementioned guitarist George van Eps and an unidentified bass-clarinetist) are given (all too) short spells to shine. And also don't overlook "Double Trouble" with vocals by The Freshmen and Ray Noble, and a hilarious Bud Freeman on tenor, interspersed with some typical Miller trombone and Johnny Mince's clarinet, and "Down By the River" which features PeeWee Erwin's excellent, soaring, Berigan-like trumpet.
Excellent sound quality and a running time of almost 80 minutes make this a most desirable item.

The Very Thought of You 19 Feb. 2000
By Robert A Dryburgh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is superb! If you like the big band sounds of the thirties as I do, you will love this. Every cut is outstanding in both orchestration and vocals. The quality of the remastering from the original recordings is excellent.

Out of the Past 12 Dec. 2013
By ToveJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This collection has my favorite Ray Noble/Al Bowlly songs "Mad About the Boy","Close Your Eyes",and "Love is the Sweetest Thing". I was delighted to find them on one disc. For me,Noble and Bowlly epitomize the smooth and sweet sound of English dance music of the early thirties,romantic,sophisticated,and pretty darned dreamy. "Mad About the Boy" has always been a favorite of mine even though I'm child of the fifties and sixties rock and roll/folk wave/British Invasion/San Francisco "sound". "Mad About the Boy" has both melting softness and high drama that give me cold chills to this day. Even without the original tart Noel Coward lyrics(catch Dinah Washington's version for those),this is a great,forgotten song. "Close Your Eyes" and "Love is the Sweetest Thing" capture,for me,the glamor and style of the "Long Vacation" between the two world wars,even in the teeth of the Depression. The audio quality is excellent given the limitations of the recording equipment of the day. There is a touching feeling of a lost world in this CD. You should definitely check it out.

Excellent Thirties Music 3 Mar. 2006
By D. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My wife and I enjoy all things big band, and this cd was a wonderful find. Hadn't heard of Al Boally before but enjoyed his singing along with the listenable, danceable, romanceable tunes of the early thirties. We heartily recommend it. We are ordering another Ray Noble title this week.

Ray Noble did wonderful music arrangements; he was ahead of his time. He had a smooth,romantic style with a jazzy flair.
