Boomkat Product Review:
There's probably no need to keep banging on about how great these compilations are, but once again CD41 have come up with an utterly engrossing account of wartime Britain, this time via 150 minutes worth of broadcasted material (dating between 1939 and 1945, as you'd imagine) comprising addresses made by prime ministers Chamberlain and Churchill, King George VI and of course many testimonies made by civilians and journalists. As is so often the case with these releases, it's the verité recordings that are the most fascinating: take for example the document of a sing-along in a Manchester air raid shelter. It's quite a bizarre scene, as a crowd of people in some bunker sing 'Good King Wenceslas' to the accompaniment of an accordionist. The tracks are sequenced according to the chronology of the war itself, beginning with news bulletins announcing war, and the first Home Guard appeals, only to conclude with celebratory VE Day accounts. Another essential addition to your CD41 collection, and in fact, probably an ideal starting point for newcomers to the series. Very highly recommended.
