Includes an extended essay by Michael Payne Restoration and Remastering by Alan Bunting
"... this Nimbus release, with its authoritative annotation, immaculate transfers and complete recordings, is in a class of its own, to be snapped up by anyone with remotest interest in - and enjoyment of - the best of British Light Music."
Jeremy Nicholas - Gramophone magazine - October 2013
"Both Nimbus and Alan Bunting, who was responsible for the restorations and re-masterings, are to be congratulated on compiling such a comprehensive survey of the work of Eric Coates as conductor. Like a number of other composers working in the first half of the 20th Century, including Elgar and Walton to name only two, Coates regularly worked in the recording studios - in his case in both EMI and Decca facilities. An unmissable bargain for Coates fans and, it is to be hoped, an introduction to younger generations of music-lovers, especially those who appreciate first class tunes."
