In the early 1950s orchestral singles were still popular with record buyers, and many labels had top conductors under contract. Even the small independent companies provided some interesting releases for collectors, and this compilation includes 14 rare tracks by famous names such as Laurie Johnson, Ray Martin, Johnny Gregory and Geoff Love for the short-lived British company Polygon.
