When Long Playing records really caught the public’s attention as the 1950s wore on, many were collections of romantic music played by light orchestras. This era was recaptured by Guild Music in the CD “Amor Amor: Music for Romance” GLCD 5133, and the response from collectors has clearly indicated a desire for more. This time the selection is even more exciting, because it has been possible to include some recordings from the early days of stereo, which have now fallen into the public domain. Among the finest exponents of this kind of music you’ll discover George Melachrino, Frank Cordell, Robert Farnon, Frank Chacksfield, Sidney Torch, Ron Goodwin and Angela Morley alongside American ‘greats’ such as Morton Gould, Frank De Vol, Warren Barker, David Rose, Glenn Osser, Leroy Holmes and the legendary Hollywood arranger Conrad Salinger.
