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.
 

"...This disc concentrates on two things – popular instrumentals and the legacy of the Polygon Light Music series. Polygon was a small but potent addition to the recorded labels of the time and it captured a most interesting selection of songs and artists, of whom we have here a representative sample."
"...David Ades is doubtless getting thoroughly bored reading how well chosen his selections and notes are. More goodies from the Guild stable."
