Fire And Rain - John Gregory & His Cascading Strings [Special Compilation]

Here is our friend Will Crump's latest Easy compilation, focussing on UK orchestra leader John Gregory, who was extremely prolific during the 1960s, 70s & very early 80s, and was also the man behind the Chaquito and Cascading Strings albums.
A note from Will:

Hello once again my fellow easy listening instrumental music lovers. I'm pleased to present my latest custom double-CD by John Gregory & His Cascading Strings. The 2 CD collection is entitled "Fire And Rain" and contains just over two hours of instrumental arrangements of soft pop hits of the late '60's, '70s, & early '80s.

Enjoy everyone!! I really like to hear John Gregory. He was really, really good. He's right up there with Norrie Paramor and John Fox.

Thanks to Will for all his effort in bringing this fine anthology to us, and please comment if you listen and enjoy!

  2. Mark and Will, this looks like an outstanding compilation. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You're most welcome, Anonymous. Enjoy!! There are more to come. I'm thinking about Orchester Anthony Ventura for the next project. I'll have to find out if he's still "hot" with the copyright folks.

  12. Christopher, you're going to be very mad at me, but I spoke too soon. I've looked at my John Gregory albums and I don't have any with Easy Like Sunday Morning, Just The Way You Are, Thinking Of You, or Breezin'. The only songs from that list I have are "You Never Done It Like That" and "Dreams". If you can get a temporary e-mail address and post it to me here, I'll just e-mail you the two mp3s I do have.
