Wholenote Discoveries - November 2009
November 11th is Armistice Day, remembering the end of THE GREAT WAR aka THE WAR TO END ALL WARS aka WW1. During WW2 through radio and recordings songs of inspiration and hope were a universal morale builder. No vocalist, at least in Britain and the colonies and probably elsewhere, was as easily recognised as Vera Lynn. She was called “The Sweetheart of the Forces” and the songs she recorded were convincingly optimistic. Decca has issued a nostalgic CD with 20 of those important morale builders including The White Cliffs of Dover, We’ll Meet Again, Auf Wiederseh’n Sweetheart, As Time Goes By, When I Grow Too Old to Dream, and Wish Me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye. A very pleasant collection I thought. Bruce Surtees
