5.0 out of 5 stars Sceptical - No, not me, 18 Jun. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pennies from Heaven: Music from the TV Series & Other Songs from the 1930s (Audio CD)
Now then, as a child of the swinging sixties this was very far from the type of music that I would listen to. And yes, it was pidgeoned into that hole known as 'grandad music', therefore, definitely not for me. Then however, as for so many others, came THAT tv series, and suddenly, something strange occured. I actually found myself enjoying it. Being still young though, it was still filed away, only this time under the heading 'not too bad but wouldnt be caught dead listening to it'.
Fast Forward 30 years.......
I bought this as a fathers day present and lulled by its title, decided to revisit those early days (before giving it as a present) and listen to it. WOW. Now its probably age but now that Im older - I LOVED IT. It wasnt a case of being transported back to my younger days watching the tv series, no. It was actually a case of loving the music for what it was. Simple, fun and enjoyable. It was nice to come in from a stressful days work and put on something that lifted the spirits. Something that was so out of syn with todays society (and all the plastic, superficial music around today) that it proved a winning alternative to the sounds that I had in my music collection.
My good old pops alas didnt get this present, (he got something really nice though) as I decided to keep it. It has been listened to on several occassions and always puts a smile on my face.
Do I recommend it? Of course I do. Dont be sceptical and put it off, take a chance, go for it and enjoy!!
