Leaving On A Jet Plane - Various Artists (1971)

 
 
Fine collection of 60's and early 70's pop songs arranged in our favourite Easy Listening style!
 
Featuring big American Easy names such as Billy May, Perry Botkin Jnr and Harry James, along with UK favourite Ray Davies and the Button Down Brass, it is well worth a listen!
 
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!

Moods Orchestral Vol. 1 (A Special Compilation)

 
 
 
Our friend Will Crump has sent us this fine instrumental collection!
 
From Will:
 
I have another little gem to share with you. This came my way and I knew after listening to it I had to share it with you guys. The orchestra wasn't named. It's a mystery orchestra or compilation of orchestras. The arrangements are really nice.
 
From myself and all contributors to Easy Listening World, I would like to wish all friends and visitors a very Happy New Year, with lots more to come!
 
I hope you enjoy this and please comment if you do!

Deutsche Starorchester - Various Artists (ELW Compilation)

 
 
 
Inspired by the Reader's Digest collections of the same name, here is my compilation of many of the German greats of Easy Listening, of which there were so many!
 
I am pleased to say that 14 of the 20 tracks are from my turntable; my thanks to the uploaders of the others.
 
I do realise that Norman Candler was born in Austria, but he did do most of his work in Germany!
 
I am currently without a turntable; due to improvements were are living away from home for the next few weeks, however I do have a backlog of albums recorded, but not yet posted!
 
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
