From the Author
It has been a real delight to write an updated edition of this, my first book. I'm sure that many other admirers of this wonderful singer will enjoy reading it - and I send them all my good wishes.

This 2nd edtion retains what I liked most about the first - lots of fascinating details presented in a very clear and user-friendly way - but with even more of it. Some of the photos from the original are not as large and clear as in the first edition, but there are more of them and they're incorporated into the text, so I think on balance that's an improvement. The text also gives more details. For example, there are now descriptions of the recording venues (like the Kingsway Hall and the old Decca studios). As someone living outside the UK, this sort of information is particularly welcome. I also enjoyed delving into the shady world of the "pirate" recordings.
The book would probably be most interesting for those who are already familiar with the well-known KF recordings and want to delve deeper. But I would recommend it for any admirer of KF's music.
I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it. One only hopes that more private recordings will be discovered as time goes on.
