Reviews

'Should more than satisfy those who like a good tune! Many of the old favourites here will be forever associated with radio and television signature tunes … Nostalgia is the key to many of thse pieces, but a collection such as this reminds us that the thing which really binds this collection together is the quality of the music itself' (BBC Music Magazine)
One composer without whom no collection of British light music would be complete is Robert Farnon (1917–2005). His highly successful Peanut Polka (1951) was conceived as a follow-up to Jumping Bean, on volume one.

from notes by Andrew Lamb © 1997

Aucun recueil de musique légère britannique ne saurait être complet sans Robert Farnon. Sa Peanut Polka (1951), qui remporta un immense succès, fut conçue comme une suite de Jumping Bean, inclus dans le premier volume de cette même série.

Ein weiterer Komponist, ohne den keine Sammlung britischer Unterhaltungsmusik komplett wäre, ist Robert Farnon (1917-2005). Seine überaus erfolgreiche Peanut Polka (1951) wurde als eine Nachfolgerin von Jumping Bean geschrieben, ein Stück, das in der ersten British Light Music Classics-Ausgabe zu finden ist.
