The Impossible Dream - Living Voices (1969)

Here we have a welcome return for our friend Suffering Fools, who, after the marvellous response to his last appeal to identify some fragments of Easy Listening music from an old tape, has given us this fine album to enjoy.

A massive collection, the Living series had so many different acts such as Living Brass, Living Strings, Living Marimbas and more.

The sleeve notes make the most of the lyrics on the songs, and I have to say they are all good choices. The result an album very much of its time!

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