The Executive Producer of these recordings, Tony D'Amato, was born in New York and at the request of Sir Edward Lewis, then boss of Decca Records, was brought to Britain to record some of the top artists on the Decca label. Sir Edward was very kenn to improve the status of British talent in the American market, and as a result of Tony D'Amato's productions, enormous sales were achieved.

Among the many artists that Tony D'Amato has produced are the Ted Heath Band, Ronnie Aldrich, Stanley Black, Dame Vera Lynn, Edmundo Ros, Robert Farnon and his Orchestra, Harry James, Stan Kenton, Benny Goodman and of course, the famous Mantovani Orchestra.

Looking back over the 20th Century, some of the greatest songs have been composed for films or Broadway shows. All the songs in this very delightful recording have sold over a million in sheet music sales and they are as popular today as when they were originally composed.
