“Wonderful background music to compliment my deco wedding theme. Many of the guests were enjoying drinks outdoors on my parents’ veranda, and the music wafted softly from the house. Everyone commented on how classy the event was. ” Susan M., New York

COVER NOTES

This collection of love songs by some of the worlds greatest singing stars covers mans aspects of that most potent of emotions. The emphasis is on dreamy and laid-back ballads, though there is a sprinkling of more up-tempo numbers too; all for your listening pleasure.
The late, great Ella Fitzgerald contributes two numbers to this compilation, recorded ten years apart. Her warm, caressing tones are well in evidence on the stylishly arranged 1929 evergreen I’ve Got A Feeling I’m Falling, recorded some years before she became an international headliner (from the mid- 1950s) under the astute management of Norman Granz. From 1937, we have Ella in the company of The Mills Brothers in Dedicated To You, made at a time when she was the girl singer with Chick Webb’s band. But performances like this don’t date; the poise and professionalism were already there in spades.
When the definitive history of popular music of the whole twentieth century is written, it is odds on that it will be Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) who will emerge as the top favourite. As ever, opinions will differ of course, but even Bing Crosby was heard to remark that A talent like that comes along once in a lifetime. Why in my lifetime? To those more familiar with Sinatra’s later, predominantly swinging and sometimes brash output from the 1950s onwards, the lush Axel Stordahl-arranged ballads from the 1940s may come as something of a surprise. Sinatra’s apprenticeship with the bands of Harry James and particularly Tommy Dorsey gained him invaluable experience, well in evidence on his recordings here of Ste/la By Starlight and My Love For You.

  1. Mr TM, Australia

    I wanted to thank you for the speed and efficient way that you dealt with my order and I am now going to sit back and enjoy about 5 hours of nostalgia. Thank you for being so pleasant and obliging and it is a pleasure to deal with you. I will certainly ask for you with regard to any future order and should I at any time in the future pay a visit to England I will drop by to say Hello!

  2. Mr L, Sussex

    Regards to all at your organisation.  We’re very fond of you indeed and have nearly all of your CDs.
