Three of the greatest wartime stars, whose incomparable talents boosted the spirits of our boys on the front-line and stirred the hearts of millions at home: Vera Lynn, Glenn Miller,The Andrews Sisters. When music was easy on the ear and songs with timeless melodies were sung by genuine stars, they were legends in their own lifetimes.

Dame Vera Lynn undoubtedly deserves the accolade: national treasure. The warmth of her voice became a beacon of hope for many during the bleakest of days and has since become synonymous with the spirit of wartime Britain. Vera's greatest recordings from 1939-1955 have been carefully restored and digitally re-mastered to ensure that distinctive, endearing voice rings clearer than ever before.

Even today, in the 21st century, the Glenn Miller Sound remains unique, distinctive and memorable. Harmonious, melodic, warm and comforting, no other sound is a more evocative reminder of the big band era and the war years. Glenn Miller and his orchestra are entirely deserving of the accolade the most popular big band of all time and here we deliver a unique selection of their biggest and best recordings.

The unforgettable Andrews Sisters: three girls who could harmonise the telephone book if asked and fairly bubbled with personality during the most difficult of times. Here we present the all-girl singing trio at their career-topping best in a memory-packed selection of their biggest hits and best known tracks. Perfect harmony indeed!

All tracks sensitively restored and digitally remastered.
