Editorial Reviews

As they lived through the cataclysmic events of World War II, Americans both in the service and on the home front found a safe harbor, emotionally, in the buoyant sounds of popular music. Classic titles from The Great American Songbook served, with the highest distinction, as an indispensable part of the war effort, lightening the burden of sacrifice as well as giving voice to the deepest feelings of loneliness, sorrow and anxious hope. From the breezy bounce of Little Brown Jug to the aching romance of I ll Be Seeing You, these are the songs in these unforgettable recordings that built the confidence of a nation in its darkest days.

Format: Audio CD
An intriquing and fascinating selection! If you're not interested in a complete box set of all the music there are four separate CDs accompanying Ken Burns' World War II Documentary. Two - this one, "Sentimental Journey", and the album titled "I'm Beginning to See the Light" - showcase sensational popular music selections, among the best from what is commonly referred to as the Swing Era. For some, this reviewer included, the Swing Era at its best produced the most distinctive and thrilling popular music in our history. This was a time with numbers such as the Benny Goodman explosion on, "Swing, Swing, Swing", with a very young Harry James' striking trumpet work utterly overshadowed by Gene Krupa's insane and mythic drum solo. You had arguably the greatest rhythm section of perhaps any time in Count Basie's "One O'clock Jump". And when you add Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, and the rest it's all just plain mindboggling. Burns' did fascinating work in his documentary on American Jazz and his grasp of the lives of the early jazz musicians brings a quiet assurance to the selections on these CDs. Heavily weighted away from merely compiling the popular hits of the day, the two CDs are geared for a modern audience rather than an audience seeking nostalgia. This is not to suggest that the two CDs contain off beat stuff for jazz aficionados only, not at all! These are loaded with gold - many of the choices were huge hits, some will sound almost too familiar to anyone over fifty. The title song, "Sentimental Journey" by Les Brown was one of the biggest hits of the War, topping the billboard of 1945.
There are, however, several caveats to this collection, "Sentimental Journey" and the other CD, "I'm Beginning to See the Light".

When my MIL saw the Ken Burns WW II series on PBS, she enjoyed the music so much that I searched for the track online. I purchased it for her as a surprise gift. If you want to get a gift for someone who lived through that era, this is the GREATEST! No dusting, no calories! She LOVES it! She played it continuously and was worried enough to ask, "Do these wear out?" Although I told her I doubt it, I assured her I would get another set if it should. She is back at the Big Band dances with her sweetheart, she is anxiously awaiting a letter from her love across the ocean, she is interrupting waiting on customers at the soda shop to listen yet again to Frank Sinatra.

It was such a hit with her, that I ordered another set for my dear Aunt who also had a sweetheart in the Navy in WW II. My sister-in-law ordered a set for a friend's parent who has early Alzhiemer's. Music has the ability to transport them back to the sights, sounds and even smells of the events taking place in the 40's--a true Time Machine. They are young, beautiful and in love again.

If you want to give a WINNER gift to one of your older relatives or friends, this is it! "Sentimental Journey" and "I'm Beginning to See the Light" bring several hours of smiles and occasional tears again and again as they evoke memories of those highly charged emotional days of World War II.

P.S. We Beatles kids are enjoying the pure sounds, beat and lyrics of the 40's, too!

Great compilation, poor, poor sound quality. I have this on a playlist with my Dean Martin's Greatest Hits, and on shuffle, I'm entreated to clear Dino, and scratchy, tinny Sentimental Journey. I would really like to see remastered tracks. Especially for the higher price.
