Product description

Had Desert Island Discs existed in 1940s America, it's likely that our typical G.I.'s short-list would have included many of these selections. There's something here to meet every mood, whether upbeat or simply nostalgic: romantic ballads, swing tunes, rhythmic novelties, vocal numbers, swing specialities and period ditties. Unbeatable music!
