During the 1950s the LP really came into its own, and many of the early big sellers featured large light orchestras playing popular standards and works specially composed for films, radio and television. 78 and 45 rpm 'singles' were also very important, and the record industry as a whole offered a wealth of tuneful music that still appeals today. As each year passes, more of these treasures from the past fall into the public domain - long after the companies who made the original recordings have chosen to neglect them. Fortunately the finest examples from this fertile period can be made to sound even better today, thanks to great advances in digital sound restoration.
