'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.
