What a treat to be able to hear once again the orchestras of Edmundo Ros, Mantovani, Paul Weston, Ray Martin, Percy Faith and many others from the 1950's. This music was once standard fare on the radio and was later used as background or introductory music to numerous television shows when TV was in its infancy. There is no jarring music here to set your teeth on edge. It is all upbeat, melodic and a pleasure to listen to. For many of us, this is a music trip down Memory Lane and Guild Light Music should be congratulated for having retrieved this music and for saving it for future generations.

I never knew about the American "light music" and "light orchestras" of the 1950s, but this and similar CDs has made me an enthusiastic fan of the composers (and especially the arrangers) of that period. The orchestras and selections featured were outstanding. I wasn't familiar with Guild, either. I hope they put out a hundred more CD's.
