A fine collection of the greatest ever love songs, this CD is the follow up to our hugely successful album ‘What Is This Thing Called Love’ and features 25 superb numbers.
So good to have love songs about being in love and commitment, as apposed to our modern songs which seemed to be more about breaking up and betrayal. This is a great CD!” T & A. Abel

COVER NOTES

Love comes in many guises these days.  We live in meretricious times so love for self, love for money and most corrosively, love for power are commonplace. And increasingly the love that once dared not speak its name is accepted and promoted.   Oh yes, and lest we forget, there still remains the kind of love that we celebrate in this collection of fine old songs from yesteryear.  They hark back a half-a-century or more, to a more innocent age than our own, when storybook conventions called for boy to meet girl; boy and girl then to embark on a marriage made in heaven and live happily ever after.   Not for them the option and consequent opprobrium of ‘living-in-sin’, as our parents might have called it.
Oddly, despite the freedoms of co-habitation and the lack of moral censure these days, we remain as committed to pure romance as ever. Whole magazines are devoted to the conventional misty-eyed view of love and to the fantasy of the perfect wedding day.  Mills and Boon continue to flourish, so who says old-fashioned sentiment is dead?    Listen to our compilation and you’ll discover the ideal soundtrack for each stage in this romantic journey.

  1. Anonymous

    Again from Past Perfect, we have crystal clear clarity like a modern recording.

  2. Mr CS, Hertfordshire UK

    I already have 20 Past Perfect albums in my collection and they are an unfailing source of pleasure. What’s more, the service is exceptional, with discs generally arriving the day after you’ve ordered them.
