3.0 out of 5 stars There Was So Much To Choose From To Meet The Claim October 21, 2007
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like '40s music, this is a must March 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.
