I came across this CD on Amazon and was absolutely thrilled to see
the name, Frank Chacksfield again after sooo many years. When I was
in high school and college and young married, I listened to this
glorious music for hours on end. Every selection is perfect. Remember,
"Limelight" (from movie Charlie Chaplin made in '50's), Ebb Tide,
How deep is the ocean. The best thing about this recording is whoever
remastered it did a beautiful job-it sounds exactly like it did
way, way back. It is wonderful to know we still have beautiful music in our lives.

There are 2 new CDs of Polygram, one this of Mr. Chacksfield, a wonderful orchestra with 2 LPs. 1 is inedit "Limelight", for the first time in CD. The other CD of Polygram is of Ronnie Aldrich, too 2 on 1. Both CDs are excellents! The sound is 5 stars for the 2 CDs.
The 4 LPs represents the golden years of the big orchestras and Decca/London.
If you love the GOOD sound, the GOOD orchestras and GOOD arragments, buy this two new CDs of Polygram.
(Note for Polygram personal: Vocalion a few weeks ago debuted with 2 CDs with the same material in each half of this compilations! Please, can somebody do a little look to the records in this world before reediting again the same LPS?).
There are MANY records (LPs) and hidden treasures waiting to see the format in CD. And Many collectors and fans of Phase 4 Stereo waiting NEW music.....

Y PARA LOS DE HABLA EN ESPAÑOL:
Decca está sacando por fin dobles álbumes en 1 CD. Aunque Vocalion presentó hace unas semanas "Beyond the sea" en otro doblete, tenemos acá "Limelight", un excelente LP, temas magníficos y espectacular sonido (degusten el Concierto de Varsovia y "Tonight"). Vale la pena comprar éste CD, al igual que el doble recién salido de Ronnie Aldrich (Soft & Wicked and Where the Love is).
Esperemos que al fin publiquen toda esta excelente música de los 60's y 70's, con arte original, toda de la era dorada de London/Decca y su sello Phase 4 Stereo.
Aprovechen, cómprenlo, está barato y obtienen una orquesta 1A, sonido mejor que cualquiera de las nuevas grabaciones DDD y música para colocarse los audífonos y disfrutar (Ojo, no es para colocar en el equipo y oírlo de fondo, no señor!).Esta música no se vuelve a escuchar.

I love the nice, relaxing instrumentals of the 50's and 60's. It's so nice after a long, tiring day at work or driving in traffic. I find I'm going to have to start ordering two of each now instead of one because my husband will take the CD's on his rig with him on his runs! I had never heard of Frank Chacksfield until I saw his CD's here at amazon. I thought I would give him a try and I'm glad I did!

Album: "Beyond The Sea"

There's a lot of water in this album, from "Ebb Tide" to "Victory at Sea." It is all very nice and relaxing. "Ebb Tide" and "Stranger on the Shore" are both done very well with a serious treatment not heard often today - Very Good. Excellent trombone section work in "Moonlight on the Ganges." My late father played in many fine trombone sections. I can almost see him working in these pieces. Chacksfield plays the strings in contrast with the brass very well. "Victory at Sea" was missing the Navy.

Album: "THE NEW LIMELIGHT"

This is a very nice mixture of styles - classical with touches of light jazz. There's a very fine trombone solo in "The Man That Got Away." His treatment of "Scarlet Ribbon" was very popular. Most people will recognize these songs as light classics of the first half of the 20th Century. These are classy recordings. The combination of "Picnic" and "Moonglow" is a 1950's classic. The "Warsaw Concerto" is a heavy piece but everyone should listen to it once or twice as a repesentative of classical music.

Out of all my CD purchases these 3 are among the best.

1. Beyond The Sea Frank Chacksfield
2. Forever In Love Floyd Cramer
3. 20 Years of Beautiful Music 101 Strings

Usually there are 1 or 2 selections on a CD that you really like but all of the choices are good. Frank Chacksfield and 101 Strings have excellent orchestrations for each tune or melody. I have thorougly enjoyed them all as they are from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

This is a double album on one cd at a bargain basement price. I am torn between rating it 3 or 4 stars. Most of it is good music. Standouts are tracks 4,9,12 and 18. Track 3 has a silly arrangement. Tracks 11, 13 and 19 are not easy listening music. because the arrangements are full of blasting, blaring brass instruments. This was my first listen to Chacksfield, and it's a bit of a disappointment.
