Notes and Editorial Reviews

Guild Music's first two ''Musical Kaleidoscope'' CDs (GLCD 5139 & 5140) were well received, judging by the requests for more of the same. It seems that many people enjoy a wide variety of musical styles, rather than just one theme for a compilation. Each new Guild Light Music CD now includes compositions specifically requested by enthusiasts around the world, and music lovers in Britain, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the USA will all be hearing their special favourites in this collection. The final two tracks are a bonus for those who still remember when ''The Phantom Raspberry Blower Of Old London Town'' (a Jack the Ripper pastiche) was an eight-week comic serial as part of the hugely popular ''The Two Ronnies'' BBC-TV comedy Read more series. An important ingredient was the choice of music, and the two titles regularly heard - Desperate Moment and Sinister Street No. 1 - are now available for the first time on a commercial CD. Read less
