Cover Notes

"The very word 'elegance' may conjure up images of powdered wigs and courtiers parading about in eighteenth century garb with perhaps a harpsichord tinkling away somewhere in the background. But it has always been around if you look for it, in the Thirties, Forties - even today, in dress, design or - what concerns us here - music.

Nature Boy lyrics - Nat King Cole :

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy.
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea.
A little shy
And sad of eye
But very wise
Very wise was he...

Until one day
One lucky day he passed my way
And while we talked of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me:
"The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return."

Customer Testimonials

  • "May I compliment you on the sound and utter perfection of your CDs. Also on the speed of your delivery service. Thank your 'team' very much and tell them to keep up the good work. I have never heard such quality recordings as yours, most CDs of 20s and 30s music sound very scratchy and noisy."  Mr E, Wirral

    "Your transfers are superb, thank you.  So many radio stations do not believe that there was music before The Beatles." Mr F, Suffolk
