"Vera Lynn was a wartime heart throb for GI's in WWII, especially in England. Her hits There'll Be bluebirds Over The White Cliff Of Dover, We'll Meet Again, and the haunting A Nightingale Sang In Barkely Square were what she was famous for singing. I discovered this great singer from watching a low budget film called "Paranoid" starring Jessica Alba, and during the hauntingly creepy film, they played several Vera Lynn songs such as A Nightingale... I waited to the end credits to find out this was, who sounded like Edith Piaf, if she could sing in english, it was the sweet voiced Lynn. If you were to compare Lynn to an American diva, you would have to say Dinah Shore, yet Lynn has more vocal power and sings with 10 times the amount of passion as the Southern Shore did. This cd is the perfect intro to lynn's music, in fact this is all you really need, and it's a great price original 40's and 30's stuff, and good sound quality though not much for recording dates and liner notes, bu the music is timeless, and dated at the same time. When you hear this you know its WWII sentimantal music at it's best. Though if your lookin' for a swingin' dame try Helen forrest, but for a purely emotionally powerful ballad singer this is the place!"
