Guild Light Music's second collection from the 1930s is a response to the warm welcome accorded to the first volume (GLCD 5106). This time the scope has been extended to include several famous continental ensembles, and well as some top names from Britain and the USA. Henry Hall, Debroy Somers and Sidney Torch join Harry Horlick, Barnabas von Geczy, Marek Weber, Edith Lorand and many others to provide a genuine 'snapshot' of a fascinating musical era. There is also a long-forgotten Ray Noble medley from the show "Mr Whittington" - part of which was recorded in experimental stereo back in 1934. This rare item is included as a 'bonus' track.
