World War 2
The Second World War was a difficult time with audiences suffering from the emotional and physical stresses of life in wartime Britain and America. During this period of conflict, a diverse range of performers came to the fore, entertaining troops and civilians both home and abroad with their nostalgic morale boosting music.
Still as popular as ever, World War II music encompasses a variety of musical genres and many hugely talented artists. Glenn Miller is perhaps the most famous of all the Second World War musicians, but there are plenty of other great singers and bandleaders such as Fats Waller and Bob Crosby & His Orchestra whose hits can be enjoyed in remastered digital quality from Past Perfect.
