Product Notes

The 8th May 2020 marks the 75th Anniversary of VE Day - Victory In Europe Day - when the Allied forces formally accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed forces of Nazi Germany, signalling the end of the war in Europe.. This 50-track 2-CD set brings together hit recordings from the USA and UK which were part of that soundtrack to the war effort, and most of which were big chart hits in the USA (the UK did not yet have a records sales chart). From emotional classics like Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again and White Cliffs Of Dover through the swing hits of Glen Miller which kept people dancing through the dark times, to the songs of longing and the rousing exhortations of patriotic anthems, it captures the unique spirit of the times. It closes with the announcements of the victory by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and U.S. President Harry S. Truman. Even for those who were not around at the time it's an evocative souvenir to commemorate a key moment in modern history.
