Format: Audio CD
On the face of it, a 5-CD set at this price would seem too good to be true, but the price is the only cheap thing about this compilation. Every CD is self-contained in that each comes in a separate jewel case, with a comprehensive liner note and clearly annotated tracks, which are arranged in chronological order. Broadly speaking, the collection covers the thirties and forties, plus a handful of tracks from the fifties. The tracklist is as follows:

1] Soft Lights And Sweet Music - Ambrose & His Mayfair Hotel Orchestra
2] Love Is The Sweetest Thing - Henry Hall's BBC Dance Orchestra
3] I Got Rhythm - Joe Brannelly's Blue Mountaineers
4] Stars Fell On Alabama - Jack Jackson & His Dorchester Hotel Orchestra
5] Who Made Little Boy Blue?

A great collection of British Dance Bands, and at good value
for money. Good transfers, and a wide selection of artists,
and this set duplicates only about 2 or 3 numbers I have elsewhere,
a very good average I would say. The attraction of British artists
such as these, to Americans like myself is, I believe the fact that
many British dance bands sound more polished and less corny that
some of the American ones. However, some leaders such as Maurice
Winnick, who evidently idolized Guy Lombardo, failed to contribute
much originality. However this collection is generally of a very high
standard, with many bands achieving some creditable leanings toward
swing. Lew Stone, and Ambrose, and Ray Noble come to mind here. Don't
miss the chance to aquire so much music for so little.

This is a cost-effective collection of British Dance bands. It gives a good place to begin to appreciate the musical efforts of our reletives across the "pond".
