"This 78 minute nostalgia trip is the first in a new series (1930s) released by Delta Bygone Days label. The compilation by Peter Dempsey is interesting mixing well known with much less known recordings. The whole thing is well presented has liner notes and excellent sound quality. Look out for the next issue 1931." C. Fuller
Great Songs of 1940
Various Artists - Great Songs of 1940

On the face of it, the beginning of World War Two would not appear to have been a particularly good time for songs, but this compilation proves otherwise. It also fulfils its title, and every track is a winner. There are also some pleasant surprises, with the lesser-known version of a hit song having been selected in some cases..." B. McCanna
