Whether you happen to know it as Easy Listening, Middle-of-the-Road, Concert Music, Mood Music - or simply Light Music, there is no doubt that these are the sounds that will rekindle some happy memories. Because Light Music has been around all our lives, and not so long ago it was heard regularly on radio stations around the world. Some broadcasters may no longer realise just how much their listeners would like to hear this kind of pleasant, easy-on-the-ear music, but thankfully record companies like Guild are aware that Light Music is currently enjoying a revival. This CD is intended as a ‘taster’ to illustrate the different styles that will be found in this new series, featuring many of the great composers and conductors who were once household names. Their vintage recordings have been digitally processed to the highest standards, ensuring that you only hear the music - sounding better today than it did when originally released.
 

"...this is a fine introductory album to the genre of light music. It should be bought by, or given to, anyone who expresses even the slightest interest in this tuneful and well-written music. There is no doubt in my mind that this can only lead listeners to want to explore deeper into these, by and large, hidden treasures. Let’s wait eagerly for the next tranche in this potentially comprehensive and excellent series."
