This collection is aimed firmly at “Dreamy Romantics”, and that might have been a better title because it is probably an accurate description of most, if not all, of the music. There are times when all of us just want to relax and allow pleasant, tuneful and relaxing melodies to soothe away the cares of the day: to use the current parlance – to ‘chill out’. Hopefully the orchestras of light music masters such as Percy Faith, Robert Farnon, David Rose, Mantovani, Paul Weston and George Melachrino will apply their usual magic. But some new names to the ‘Guild family of conductors’ can be spotted this time, and it is good to welcome Americans Archie Bleyer and Carl Cotner, plus Parisian Armand Bernard and that British Light Music Master Max Jaffa, whose famous Trio (with cellist Reginald Kilbey and pianist Jack Byfield) was a permanent feature of the music scene in the UK for over 30 years. Irving Berlin wrote “they say that falling in love is wonderful” and it is to be hoped that these lyrics have been reflected throughout all the music on this CD.
