Vinyl Finds: British Comedy, Glenn Miller and Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra
Golden Hour Of Comedy
Released on Pye's Golden Hour label this compilation from 1972 features extracts from four BBC TV and radio series, namely Round The Horne, Marty, The Frost Report and The World of Beachcomber. I'm assuming all these extracts were previously available on various albums.
Glenn Miller Orchestra - The Collection
Repackaged for the umpteenth time but still sounding brilliant, heres a double LP featuring the music of wartime band leader Glenn Miller released as part of The Collector Series in the late 80s.
Strings By Starlight
Music For Pleasure reissue of a Capitol album featuring favourite melodies of the classics performed in the late 1950s at The Hollywood Bowl - still a few years away from been conquered by the Beatles!
