Format: Audio CD
She didn't have the jazzy pipes of Bing Crosby or Rosemary Clooney, but she had a clear, pleasant voice that had a lot of warmth to it, like bringing your cold hands up against a warm teapot. This box set has many of her greatest classics on it. "The White Cliffs of Dover" was inspired by England's privation during World War II, and although it was written by an American who had never been to Dover (and who didn't know that bluebirds are far and few between on those chalky cliffs), English people loved it too. Another popular song, "We'll Meet Again," still speaks to people separated by war and other disasters, it's cheerful, but there's a tear behind the smile.

Vera Lynn is still alive, nearly ninety, though her days of public performance came to a gentle halt in the mid-1990s. We saw quite a bit of her then, for that was the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, and whole generations of her fans have been dying every day. Some youngsters however still admire her clarion call of a voice, and I hope that one day we will be seeing her three feature films on DVD, for she wasn't a bad little actress either. The films were "We'll Meet Again," "Rhythm Serenade," and "One Exciting Night."

In the meantime, film fans who love Kubrick's "Dr Strangelove" are innately familiar with Vera Lynn's majesty, because she can be heard singing over the final scenes of the film.

Format: Audio CD
This came out from The Good Music Record Co., of Paramus, N.J. at the dawn of the CD age, also offering records and tapes. You saw it advertised on TV and in magazines such as World War II. There are no liner notes, and the sound is, well .... adequate shall we say, but far from what you get now on cleaned-up compilations.

The blurb says "Here are 42 of World War II's most cherished love songs which will rekindle your warmer memories. The songs of separated sweethearts ... and coming home again. The songs which kept our loves and our hearts strong. The songs with the melodies we'll never forget ... and words which will last forever."

Well, I can tell you right off that 16 of the tracks are somewhat misplaced in that they either came out before WW II, or well after. Both Harbor Lights by Frances Langford and That Old Feeling by Shep Fields were hits in 1937, Marie by Tommy Dorsey was at its peak in late 1937/early 1938, Bing Crosby's Mexicali Rose was popular in 1938, while Deep Purple by Larry Clinton orchestra and Bea Wain was an early 1939 tune, months before the war began in September 1939. It can, of course, be argued that these remained popular throughout the war years and so are valid entries in the volume, but the fact is, there were all kinds of war-time tunes that would have been better suited to the compilation.

Remember these beautiful songs from when I was a little girl - can even recall the words. Just too precious and also brings back memories of my mother and father.

My wife loves '40s music and this is her favorite. It has a good selection of music from that era. It's swell music to listen to at the officer's club while you're having a beer with Richard Bong and the fellas.

This CD contains some of the best music heard during this time of some of our lives. It brings back memories that no other period could every return.
