7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Feb. 2005
Format: Audio CD
This compilation focuses on Vera's music from 1936 to 1960 although nearly all the tracks are from the fifties. Her wartime songs are here but while the original 1942 recording White cliffs of Dover is here, We'll meet again is a 1953 re-recording. Two other wartime recordings are included - It's a lovely day tomorrow (from 1940) and Be like the kettle and sing (from 1943). Vera's early recordings from the thirties are represented by Up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire, Harbour lights and Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye. The remaining songs are all fifties recordings.
Here you will find all Vera's fifties UK pop hits - Auf wiedersehen, Forget me not, Homing waltz, Windsor waltz, My son my son, Who are we, A house with love in it, Faithful hussar, Travelling home. You will also find songs that appeal to children and adults alike (Riding my bike, Shopping) and many other outstanding tracks including plenty of covers of songs from Vera's formative years in the twenties and thirties. Among the famous songs covered here by Vera are I'm forever blowing bubbles (which might have faded into obscurity if it hadn't become a football anthem), Lambeth waltz, When I grow too old to dream, As time goes by, Tonight (from West side story) and The rain in Spain (from My fair lady).
Vera has a very distinctive singing voice with a pronounced southern English accent that may not appeal to everybody but I love it. If you also love Vera's music, buy this compilation - it will give you many hours of listening pleasure.

WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY, this 2 cd collection covering her Decca years was indeed a trip down memory lane which now sits with pride amongst my cd collection.

Format: Audio CD
At one time Vera Lynn was cutting a disc a month and there must be many more titles awaiting reissue.
I could never tell-this is missing though its on 2 other comps.Hardly a World shattering song it was co written by Edwin Astley of The Saint and Danger Man fame and Vera could very well have been the first to record his music.Astley was named as being one of her arrangers and he named one of his daughters after her daughter.
There are in fact many more Vera Lynn comps other than what Amazon are stocking-I have quite a few
