Notes & Reviews:

After so many wonderful releases in the Golden Age of Light Music series, it is now time for the awards season. To wit, this particular release presents the best-of-the best, the "pick of the litter," those instrumental recordings which are classics either by performance or by the reputation of the tunes themselves. Therefore such favorites as Holiday for Strings, Serenata, Portrait of a Flirt, Vanity Fair, and In a Persian Market are on this disc. The novelty value comes in some lesser-known works and performances which offer an alternative to the original recordings (hence, Morton Gould's take on Holiday for Strings instead of David Rose's own performance).
