The fact that this collection of music is labelled ‘Volume 5’ should convey at least two significant hints: firstly there have been four previous Guild CDs of similar music; and secondly, comments from previous purchasers have indicated that they would still like more from the same source.
Fortunately the well has not yet run dry, and it is hoped that the performances by the orchestras who have by now become familiar friends will confirm the high standards that were regularly achieved.
'Music While You Work' was a regular BBC programme during World War 2, and Decca Records (the source of the recordings in this collection) issued a complementary series of 78s that could be played in factories when required. The first 78s appeared in 1942, and over 400 were eventually released before the final ones were issued in January 1947.
Most of the recordings featured dance bands and small groups but many were orchestral and the majority of these may now be found within these five Guild collections.
