 Special prom night for all British fans! July 4, 2012 By ROBERT T. (PORTLAND, OR) See All My Reviews "I'm a collector of prom night performances. We bought 10 of these to gift friends celebrating the queen's diamond jubilee. Everyone loved this version (includes God Save the King!) A bright, lively recording of all the old favorites, just beautifully played. My wife's all-time favorite. Great price/great recording. You can't do better than this!" Report Abuse
