Just as two economists usually disagree, it would be difficult to find two music lovers who acknowledge where the exact boundaries of Light Music actually lie. The repertoire covered in this collection would certainly provide food for some serious arguments, but does it really matter? If music is enjoyable, then why do some people get so uptight about labels? At Guild we simply want to offer a varied selection that is pleasing upon a first encounter, and can become increasingly rewarding when it becomes better known, like a good friend. And ‘friend’ is a good clue to the repertoire covered here, because conductors such as Percy Faith, Sidney Torch, Robert Farnon, Philip Green, David Rose, Dolf van der Linden and Charles Williams are already established Guild favourites. This time they are joined by Stanford Robinson, Bill McGuffie, Jack Hylton, Leslie Jones and other conductors who excel at producing some fine Light Music.
