The Cheesy Listening Album - Various Artists (2002)



Here is an early compilation which helped get me into the whole genre of Easy Listening!

Featuring many of EMI's Easy big hitters such as Joe Loss, Geoff Love, Manuel & Ron Goodwin, it was a good introduction to Easy before I started trawling the charity shops round my way, and found many of the original LP's these tracks appeared on!

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

Hammond On The Rocks (1971)




#REPOST#

Nice six track EP featuring Hammond and Sax.

It is worth hearing if only for the track Down By The Riverside, a traditional tune given a very funky upbeat treatment here.

The remaining tracks are good, but positively sedate compared to the featured track referred to above and previewed below.

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