The Guy Mitchell bandwagon rolled on and upward throughout the 50s with million sellers and chart toppers. At the height of his fame he topped the bill at the London Palladium for two weeks with all seats sold within 24 hours - an all time record.

The Sweetest Sweetheart Of All The Sweetest Sweetheart Of All : JIMMY MESENE : CD
Jimmy received many plaudits for his vocal spot during The Georgians stage shows. His voice almost operatic at times - and instantly recognisable. Come the war Gonella disbanded The Georgians. Jimmy teamed up with Al Bowlly as a double-act. They were billed as ''The Radio Stars with Two Guitars''. 5 of their recordings are featured here - including the 2 sides from their last session in April 1941. Just over two weeks after this session, Al Bowlly was killed in the Blitz. Jimmy made his last recording with Mantovani in March 1946.

The Very Best Of The Very Best Of : JIMMY YOUNG : CD
All the hits! and more - Nowadays probably best remembered as the presenter of 'The Jimmy Young Programme' on BBC Radio 2. Which ran for 29 years from 1973. He was also a singing star of the 50s. The majority of these recordings were made for Decca, between 1952 & 1957, but there are four sides from 1951 which were originally issued on the Polygon label. Polygon Records (a name 'inspired' by the empty cage of a deceased parrot) was one of the first independent post war British record labels. In 1955 he became the first British artist ever to achieve the coveted No.1 chart position with two consecutive releases, Unchained Melody and The Man From Laramie.

They Played Greens Playhouse Glasgow They Played Greens Playhouse Glasgow : VARIOUS ARTISTS : CD
Enjoy this slice of musical nostalgia and social history! A fascinating glimpse of music making spanning from the dark, uncertain middle war years through to victory and beyond. 50 examples of bands and ensembles who brought pleasure to many in the nine years covered by these recordings (1941-1950). CD1 is made up of recordings made in the middle war years (1941 / 1942), and our three entertainers are Joe Loss, Nat Gonella and Harry Roy - with their respective aggregations. All of these recordings were made at The Green's Playhouse, Glasgow - a venue fondly remembered by many - and which flourished from its opening in 1927 until its unfortunate, but inevitable, closure in 1973. CD2 covers the years 1944 to 1950, and features popular bands and vocalists of the time who played residencies at the locations shown.

Too Cool For The Blues Too Cool For The Blues : JOHNNY DANWORTH : 2CD
These forty recordings featured date from the late Fifties, and show a polished big band in a mixture of original Dankworth compositions alongside a handful of offerings by modern jazz musicians and composers. The rest of the programme is made up of 'standards' which, like the other numbers, are played in a forward-looking 'progressive' style. The Dankworth Orchestra's first American concert took place at the Newport Jazz Festival on July 3rd 1959 and proved a great success. Johnny disbanded the orchestra early in 1960 but re-formed a new band in the Summer of that year. During the next decade his activities were mainly centred on writing music for many films, commercials and television serials.
