• Compiled by Bob Stanley, and making sense of the great American songwriters of the pre-rock era, this is the first in Croydon Municipal’s Songbook series.
• It throws the spotlight on one of New York’s finest, the laid back Hoagy Carmichael. This is a hugely satisfying parade of hits and bona fide pop standards, from the ’30s to the ’60s, classics that still feature regularly on set lists, on the radio, and in adverts as well as lesser known gems.
• Beautifully presented and annotated, the in-depth and heartfelt sleeve-notes tell the story behind Hoagy, the writer of Heart & Soul, Stardust and Georgia On My Mind.
• Perfect springtime listening…
