Guild Music’s second "Hall of Fame" collection brings together more of the best-known names in Light Music alongside some very talented composers and conductors who deserve to be remembered, even though they may not have achieved the kind of fame enjoyed by their peers. The featured composer is Leonard Trebilco, more familiar to music lovers as ’Trevor Duncan’ - the man responsible for the original "Dr. Finlay’s Casebook" music. For the first time his famous Grand Vista - the fanfare once used by Pearl & Dean in British cinemas - is available on commercial release.

"...HALL OF FAME VOLUME 2 has 26 tracks featuring superb music by some of the foremost names in light music from the U.S.A, Britain and Europe. As with volume one in Guild’s Hall Of Fame the emphasis is on a mixture of well known orchestras and/or compositions together with rarer pieces. With studio recordings from the 1940s and on to the mid 1950s the selection is a typically rich and satisfying 77 minutes worth of music of varied moods. A superb Angela Morley arrangement of Victor Herbert’s March Of The Toys recorded by Geraldo’s Tip Top Tunes Orchestra in 1949 is a definite highlight. Also very appealing is a version of Time On My Hands by the little known U.S. maestro, Meyer Davis. He led a fine hotel/society dance orchestra in the `40s. An excellent version of the Lecuona classic, The Breeze And I by Frank DeVol and his orchestra is noteworthy too and it is always a delight to hear pieces by the immaculate Danish State Radio Orchestra conducted by Robert Farnon. Music composed by the late Trevor Duncan is also an outstanding feature."
