What are ‘Transcriptions’ and why have they been ‘lost’? Generally speaking the term refers to recordings of live performances made for use by broadcasting organisations before the advent of audio tape. The majority of these discs were destroyed after use, and those that have survived (mostly in private collections) are of historical importance. This CD includes rare, long forgotten performances by the likes of Sidney Torch, David Rose, Percy Faith and George Melachrino. They were recorded by names familiar within broadcasting circles such as the BBC, Standard, World, Thesaurus and Lang-Worth, to name just a few. Another valuable source was the entertainment arms of the Armed Forces during World War 2, including the Overseas Recorded Broadcasting Service in Britain, and the Armed Forces Radio Service in the USA.
