From This Day in Music for Sept. 13, 2012:
2009, Vera Lynn went to No.1 on the UK album chart with ‘We’ll Meet Again: The Very Best of Vera Lynn’. At the age of 92 it made her the oldest living artist to achieve this feat with an album. The previous oldest living artist to top the charts was Bob Dylan, who at 67 saw his album ‘Together Through Life’ become number one in the UK earlier this year.
It’s Dame Vera Lynn, by the way. Here is the song, which deserves every accolade it gets.
