About

A unique collection that presents the 27 finest numbers created by one of the greatest of all movie songwriters, Nacio Herb Brown (1896-1964), with a galaxy of great stars. Mostly setting the lyrics of musical movie producer Arthur Freed, Brown has left a legacy of many great songs that have stood the test of time. Singin’ In The Rain, his most famous song, gives the title to Retrospective’s collation of all his most successful numbers – every one of them a familiar family favourite. It also opens (with the original, Cliff Edwards) and closes (with Gene Kelly) the whole sequence. The earliest recording is the 1927 The Doll Dance from Nat Shilkret and the latest – apart from Gene Kelly – Frank Sinatra’s 1950 Should I? In between are You Were Meant For Me, Paradise, Temptation, All I Do Is Dream Of You, You Are My Lucky Star, You Stepped Out Of A Dream… all from the same pen!
