Some of her best-known songs have been re-orchestrated for the album, which features her original vocals.


You'd think she could have made the effort to write some new songs. :colbert:

There was just an advert on TV for Vera Lynn's new album. It seems there are duets with Alfie Boe and Alexander Armstrong.

At first, I thought this said, "It seems there are duets with Alfie Bass and Neil Armstrong."

Anyway, if she'd had any sense, she'd've recorded a duet with Ed Sheeran. :colbert:

Can she now happily record with Bauhaus since it was discovered that they weren't from Germany but Northampton instead?

Vera Lynn's famous song "There'll Always Be An England" doesn't feature on this new album, nor on the 'best of' released a few years ago.
