In readiness of the other four volumes of this UK Easy sampler series coming here to ELW, here is a repost of the original album, first posted here almost three years ago, and long since unavailable.
Featuring a host of Easy stars such as Chaquito, Ray McVay, and Paul Mauriat, it is a fine sampler for the smooth Easy sound of the '70s, with a mixture of traditional Easy fare, Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, Lara's Theme, Love Story etc., and Easy pop tracks such as Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep, Aquarius, I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing.
My highlight, however, is the best version of In The Mood I have ever heard; the energy in the arrangement and playing really is something else!
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
Album Sample - In The Mood (Syd Lawrence Orchestra)
After Dolly Parton's magnificent triumph at Glastonbury this weekend, here is one of the few related albums I have.
The very hard to find soundtrack album from the classic comedy movie, featuring the main and end title versions of the very famous Dolly Parton song, with some excellent incidental music written by Charles Fox.
Aside from the title song, my picks are Office Montage, Charlie's Bar, and Easy Time.
