CD: As Time Goes By. GLMY105
The spirit of war-time Britain in music, sounds and song
1 CD. Over 1 hour of playing time. All tracks restored and digitally remastered.
Here’s the ultimate musical tribute to the bulldog spirit of the people of Britain – a 23-strong collection of morale boosting songs together with the inspirational words of Field Marshall Montgomery and Winston Churchill and even the stirring sound of a Spitfire flypast! No other album better evokes the optimism, achievements, sacrifices and memory of these 20th century heroes: the people of the home front and front line. Here are the sounds to which our forebears fought, suffered and began new lives once the war was won.
