CRITIC REVIEW:

“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
