Groovy collection of instrumentals with wordless vocals sounds in parts like a James Last Non Stop Dancing album, but this just seems a bit better than that, because although the superb arrangements by Ken Woodman are quite traditional, the rhythm section is unlike any Cyril Stapleton produced before in its use of fuzz guitar.
Recommended for all lovers of easy listening and 60s pop.
Ripped as 2 non stop medleys.


  1. Thanks for such beautiful music!

  2. Hi Mark, This is great. I have all the James Last NSD albums and your right is does sound very similar.

    Thanks again!

  3. Yes, agree that this is great. But, I dare say, that the music style here is not too much typical for Stapleton. I can suggest that he had to satisfy pop demands of that times - non-stop rhythmic disco dance(as presented in this album). And as a professional musician, he succeeded well.
    Thanx a lot to Mark for all his efforts. Sencerely appreciated.

  4. Mark, did you notice the custom Manuel & The Music Of The Mountains album I uploaded to zippyshare and posted here a few days ago? Could you feature it and post it like you did this album with the cover art and track listing displayed? I think I posted it as a reply to the Alex Malampre album I posted when I first joined.
