Tuff Guitar English Style (Stereo) - Al Caiola (1965)


In my previous post, this album was generously provided by Suffering Fools, but it was the mono version. I appealed for anyone who had the stereo version, and with big thanks to DIDI, here it is!

I know that mono has its charms for recordings of a certain age, but I do feel that stereo makes the music somehow feel more alive!

Love Is Blue - Living Marimbas (1968)


Another fine album from our friend Suffering Fools, this is a mix of film soundtrack tunes, one TV soundtrack, and some standards and traditional themes.

Another quality rip, the album has some top orchestral arrangements, with the melodies played on the marimba. It is a nice blend of instruments and makes for very Easy Listening!

Thanks again to Suffering Fools for all his effort bringing this album to us, I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!

Tuff Guitar English Style - Al Caiola (1965)


Here is another fine album from our friend Suffering Fools.

Another from the Easy guitar man, Al Caiola, it features a blend of classic 60s pop songs with some other very good selections, including an original from Al himself!

Released in the UK under the title Tuff Guitar British Style (presumably not to offend Scottish music fans), I love the blend of guitar and brass on this, and although this is the mono version, it is nonetheless a very enjoyable listen!

Should anybody out there have the stereo version of this album, please share it with us!

Thanks again to Suffering Fools for all his time and effort bringing us another great album, and please leave him a comment if you enjoy it!
