Top Hits of the 40's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Sony Special Products' Top Hits of the 40's contains ten random traditional pop hits from the '40s. There may not be many rhyme or reason to the selections, but they're all quite entertaining, making this a solid budget-line compilation. Among the featured tracks are Les Brown's "Sentimental Journey," Will Bradley's "Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar," Harry James' "I'll Get By As Long As I Have You," Benny Goodman's "A String of Pearls" and the Modernaires' "Juke Box Saturday Night."
