101 Strings - Million Seller Hit Songs Of The 60's

The musical 1960's have been swamped in a torrent of rock and roll drivel.
How-ever, in spite of this din, there have been songs penned of such quality
and magical form that it is a possible that we shall maintain sanity in popular
music after all. These melodies of rare staying quality will become ''evergreens''
on their own merit. Film music by Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini, who have
given us Days of Wine And Roses and Moon River; 
the wide screen pathos of Exodus;
Ferrante and Teicher's haunting recordings of Theme From A Summer Place -
all rank with any melodies to come from the sound stages of 
Hollywood in any decade.
The soul artistry of Ray Charle's I Can't Stop Loving You; the brilliant theatre of
Anthony Newley's What Kind Of Fool Am I - all worthy of awards.
The staccato color of Lawrence Welk's waxing of Calcutta and Tony Bennet's #1
seller I Left My Heart In San Francisco are a musical 
redemption for a generally song barren era.
Robert Lowden's arrangements of these twelve tunes embody the flavor of the original hits and are enhanced by the richness of the world's largest string orchestra recorded
in a breathtaking dimension.

excellent sound from master tape
