Frank Chacksfield's orchestra was one of the most popular and successful English dance bands of the nineteen-fifties, as each of the songs on this vintage record compilation show - each sold a million plus copies. Sure - it was the music of your grandparents - maybe it was "mood music" , maybe it seems like easy listening - but it was a full orchestra with all of its music carefully arranged. It was a good orchestra. Chacksfield gained some extra fame in the sixties by recording "The Beatles Songbook" - which was either sacrilege ... or groovy ... .... or Fab .... depending.

And what can I say about the cover of this old vintage record? nineteen disembodied heads of pretty women against a background of midnight blue. What was London thinking? It' a little spooky, if not downright eerie and .... unsettling.
