Description

All the romance, fun and unforgettable music of a 1940s weekend captured in 24 classic recordings. If you're planning a 40s themed party or crave a taste of the music that helped steer the nation to victory, these wonderful tunes still sound as fresh, familiar and touching as ever, more than seven decades on.

Whether you've ever sampled the joys of a 1940s re-enactment weekend or just love the fun, warmth and emotion of vintage music, 'A 1940s Weekend' is packed with the very best in melody from the war years and beyond! Here are the songs, sounds and stars that lit up the dance floors, cinema screens, music halls and radio airwaves of 1940s Britain - golden nuggets from our musical past that raised the spirits and kept morale sky high during the most testing times in our nation's history.

Packed to the brim with original 1940s recordings by the likes of Bing Crosby, the Andrews Sisters, Vera Lynn and Glenn Miller, this exclusive 20-track CD offers a rich, lively tapestry of big band favourites, right-from-the-heart romantic ballads, irrepressible comedy classics and heartening singalong favourites. From Dinah Shore's spine-tingling "I'll Walk Alone" to Tommy Dorsey's sweet and swinging "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", these are the songs to which our parents and grandparents danced, dated and dreamed of better times ahead.
