This compilation is largely inspired by the great Conrad Salinger, one of the creators of the sound of the Hollywood musicals in their glory days, although his name means nothing to most people. But Salinger’s "That’s Entertainment" is probably second only to Irving Berlin’s "There’s No Business Like Show Business" as a great show business anthem, and it sets the scene for many examples of outstanding melodies from films and the stage. Performances by top orchestras such as Wally Stott, Percy Faith, Andre Kostelanetz, George Melachrino and David Rose testify to the creative genius of all the composers involved. The finale offers a suite from the largely forgotten film "Since You Went Away", composed and conducted by Max Steiner.
