From The Inlay: Music from two previous centuries are reprised here and are just as popular in today's 21st century. All are classics of their time, from Liszt and Tchaikovsky of the 19th century, to evergreens from the 1920s to the 1960s. Worthy of a special mention from 1918, is a lovely waltz with a familiar melody, but it's title eludes most music lovers, unless you live in Ohio that is, because "Beautiful Ohio" has long since been adapted as their State National Anthem.
John has compiled yet another collection of favourites for our pleasure. Represented here amongst others, are hits of Vera Lynn, Bing Crosby, Connie Francis, Patsy Cline and Timi Yuro. How fortunate we are to have, at the touch of a button, such melodic, timeless, easy-listening music to enjoy time and again, instead of today's musical offerings. How fortunate we are in having Mr. John Bowdler reminding us that there is nothing like a good old familiar tune. They are like old friends and with a selection such as this, who could ever be lonely?
So on with the music, you can sing along, dance along, or just reminisce with John as you listen to, "Dancing Through The Years".
