CRITIC REVIEWS:

"This compilation marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Vocal Record Collectors’ Society. In addition to the traditional selection, a second CD contains eighteen records issued on VRCS vinyl LPs between 1959 and 1992. Both discs have been scrupulously transferred from good original copies and the standard of presentation, including full recording details and excellent biographical notes, is quite exceptional….This is an admirable souvenir of an important occasion, and all that remains to be done is to congratulate the Vocal Record Collectors’ Society on achieving its Silver Anniversary and wish it well for the future."

- Robert Bunyard, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2007

“These VRCS issues really are the Rolls-Royce of reissues. Complete discographical details are included (even down to the speeds used for each transfer), there are detailed notes on each of the 24 singers, and there are photographs of all but two of them. Seth Winner’s transfers are also uniformly excellent….I think his transfers rank alongside those of Ward Marston, Andrew Rose and Roger Beardsley….”
