Isn't Valentine's Day the perfect occasion to make wedding plans?

With 'The Sound Of Wedding Bells' Bear Family Records® provides the perfect soundtrack!

33 nostalgic songs from 1934 to 1962 underline the timeless romanticism of the theme.

Ballads, but especially up-tempo numbers from swing, country, teenage sound, rockabilly. And orchestral sounds - everything around the romantic theme of marriage!

Besides well-known artists like Gene Vincent, Sheb Wooley and Brenda Lee, we deliver quite a few rarities, recordings that appear here on CD for the first time.

Worth listening to for those who are not willing to get married - maybe they will change!

The full-color 20-page booklet contains rare photos and memorabilia, as well as an accompanying text for each song, written by producer Marc Mittelacher.

Our Valentine's Day compilations can be heard throughout the year. We think the longing and thoughts to the beloved should not be limited to one day a year. With this issue, we combine Valentine's Day with the theme of getting married. Unmarried people will start dreaming about it, while already married people will reminisce while listening to this CD. Although there are many up-tempo songs to listen to, it is still quite romantic.

This compilation delivers some rare recordings, e.g. by Nat Nyll and Orchestra or a very rare recording for Imperial Records by Terri & The Kittens. Who remembers The Tarriers on the Glory label? Or a Sun recording from Memphis by a certain O.C. Holt, unreleased at the time? Well-known titles are balanced with rarities. Gene Vincent's obligatory Wedding Bells, Brenda Lee's Let's Jump The Broomstick and Donnie Brooks' Mission Bell are among the better known titles. And of course, the classic Love And Marriage in the version of the McGuire Sisters can't be missed! British artists include Eve Boswell, Frank Weir, Rikki Henderson, Tommy Steele, Victor Silvester, Jack Hylton, The Brook Brothers and the great Lorrae Desmond!
