Pink Champagne: A Collection of Vintage Light Music

 
As with their previous volume, Twilight Memories, Living Era performed a valuable service in reissuing the 27 selections heard on Pink Champagne: A Collection of Vintage Light Music. Most of them never before released on CD, these sides (most from the late '40s or early '50s) comprise light music of the highest order, most of them buoyant performances

Overview

As with their previous volume, Twilight Memories, Living Era performed a valuable service in reissuing the 27 selections heard on Pink Champagne: A Collection of Vintage Light Music. Most of them never before released on CD, these sides (most from the late '40s or early '50s) comprise light music of the highest order, most of them buoyant performances that shouldn't be dismissed as uncomplicated simply because they're upbeat and tuneful; in fact, they inordinately involve complex arrangements. The list of conductors includes several giants in the field -- Morton Gould, George Melachrino, Jack Hylton, Frank Chacksfield, Percy Faith, Sidney Torch -- and there are many excellent tracks. One of the best is "Music for Rivers of the North of England," a piece separated into two parts, Serene and Flowing.
