This collection features a number of works which, for various reasons, did not ideally fit in with the concept of other recent Guild Light Music CDs. Many of the titles are special requests from loyal supporters of this series, but there was so much material available that a second volume will follow shortly. A special feature this time is the inclusion of some rare recordings of BBC orchestras, and particularly welcome will be the opening themes for the much-missed Light Programme, and the signature tune for the ‘Countryside’ series.
 

"...On this Guild Music set the sound has been remastered to a most acceptable standard that is exceptional for the age of fifty to seventy-five years..."
"Lovers of Light Music will be in their element with this eclectic and generous collection of scores from the Guild Music label."
