Format: Audio CD
All tracks here date from 1955 at the latest, mostly from the fifties but with a fair selection from the forties and a few earlier. The music reflects British mainstream popular taste of the era including a few novelty songs. Conspicuously absent are any R+B (except one track by Louis Jordan) or country recordings. The fusion of those styles produced rock'n'roll but you won't even find Bill Haley here. So this very much an easy-listening collection, but I knew that when I bought it, and I'm very pleased to have a compilation like this, containing as it does many tracks that I don't already own on CD, as well as plenty that duplicate what I have on other multi-artist compilations or on releases by the individual artists. Some of the tracks that I hadn't already got on CD sound very familiar anyway, either because I have other versions of those songs or because they were a part of my childhood.

Each of the four CD's is based around a radio show or station of the era. The first CD, titled Desert island romance, opens with the theme to Desert island discs (still broadcast on BBC Radio 4, having become something of a tradition), with the remainder of the CD occupied by 24 love songs, many of them ballads but also including a few up-tempo songs such as Mr Sandman (Chordettes). Overall, I think that this is the strongest CD of the four, including as it does Softly softly (Ruby Murray), Unchained melody (Jimmy Young), When I fall in love (Doris Day), No other love (Perry Como), Three coins in the fountain (Frank Sinatra), Suddenly there's a valley (Petula Clark), Moulin rouge (Mantonavi), Cry (Johnnie Ray), Someone else's roses (Joan Regan) and Little things mean a lot (Kitty Kallen). Yes, that really is the same Petula Clark who later became famous for Downtown.

All I can say is, make yourself a nice cupper, & just close your eyes, & watch the memories come flooding back? While listing to this fantastic collection of great music.

This is a delightful mix of (mainly) 50s numbers, sung by the original artistes. Including the theme music to "The Archers", "Desert Island Discs", "Music While You Work", and a wide variety of numbers by all those performers whose names we all remember...
I love Arthur Askey's "Bee Song", and a surprise number, "Peaceful Street" sung by Ernest Butcher, has me in stitches!
This CD set would make an ideal gift for anyone over 40 - this is exactly the music that used to be played on the Home Service in the 50s and early 60s. Magical!
