Music To Watch Birds By - The Bob Crewe Generation (1967)





Here, reposted today in tribute to the great Bob Crewe who has died at the age of 83, is this groovy trip back to the swinging sixties filled with brass, strings, and wonderful light 60s beat grooves.

The follow-up to the classic album Music To Watch Girls By, all 10 tracks are fantastic and I give this my highest rating!

I hope you enjoy it and please commment if you do!

Rest in peace, Bob!

The Best Of The Button Down Brass (1968)



Here is an album shared by our friend Paul from Colombia, it is one I do have in my collection but have not ripped or shared thus far.

It is a fine compilation of Ray Davies earlier work on the Fontana label, featuring 10 fine instrumental tracks, my picks being nice versions of Fool On The Hill and MacArthur Park.

Many thanks to Paul for sending the album, and please comment if you enjoy it!
