There'll Always Be an England

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
In the early hours of September of 1939, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain announced to the country and the world that barely 21 years after the end of what had been known -- until then -- as the World War, England was forced to go to war again. The first war had virtually wiped out a generation of young and not so young Britishers, and the people might understandably have been bitter, confused, and angry, but they were equally determined to win this war, once and for all, and rose to the occasion magnificently. It's commemorated on this ASV release, which does what that vintage reissue label does best, assembling a 22-song compilation of morale-building and ...

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
In the early hours of September of 1939, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain announced to the country and the world that barely 21 years after the end of what had been known -- until then -- as the World War, England was forced to go to war again. The first war had virtually wiped out a generation of young and not so young Britishers, and the people might understandably have been bitter, confused, and angry, but they were equally determined to win this war, once and for all, and rose to the occasion magnificently. It's commemorated on this ASV release, which does what that vintage reissue label does best, assembling a 22-song compilation of morale-building and patriotic recordings from year 1939, almost all of them dating between the day war was declared and the close of the year. From the title track -- by Joe Loss & His Orchestra with Monte Ray singing -- to the comical "We're Gonna Hang Out the Washing" by Elsie & Doris Waters, listeners get a veritable hit parade of British talent at work in all aspects of entertainment, of which the most interesting is a medley entitled "Songs the Tommies Sing" by Lew Stone & His Orchestra with vocal by Sam Browne. Browne also turns up fronting Ambrose and his orchestra on "Adolf," and Flanagan & Allen are represented several times over. And, of course, Vera Lynn is here with "Wishing." The best and strangest track here is the curio "F.D.R. Jones" by Flanagan & Allen -- a "race" number originating in the United States, it's done in a modest faux-racial manner here but breezily enough that it's not really offensive, and manages to acknowledge both American popular culture and a salute to the American president, who was to be a vital secret ally of the British cause for the next 23 months until the U.S. entry into the war, when neutrality could be shed on the American side of the Atlantic. "The Handsome Territorial" by Nat Gonella & His Georgians and -- to a lesser degree -- "They Can't Black Out the Moon" by Harry Roy & His Orchestra are two fine straight jazz tracks thrown into the midst of the more pop-oriented sounds that mostly make up this CD. The sound is excellent, even by ASV's usual standards -- the only track that is less than pristine is "Goodnight Children Everywhere" by Joe Loss, with vocal by Chuck Henderson, which has some surface noise in its source that comes through -- and the myriad emotions conjured by the CD can be quite overpowering in the concentrated dose of emotion contained herein. Peter Gammond's annotation spells out a lot of the context.
