Listen Easy! - Various Artists (1998 BBC Compilation)

My apologies for the lack of activity here over the last month or so, I have had a few computer problems and been unable to upload for a while.

Here is a fine compilation of 70s pop, played by some big names in UK Easy Listening, such as Norrie Paramor, Neil Richardson, John Fox, Ronnie Aldrich and Johnny Douglas!

Featuring one or two songs seldom recorded by Easy orchestras such as Elton John's Daniel, Neil Young's Heart Of Gold and Don Mclean's Vincent, these are a rare Easy treat!

All recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 2 during the 1970s, many of these tracks would not have seen release to the public at the time. 

This was also one of the first CD compilations of Easy Listening I picked up in the late 90s as my introduction to the instrumental Easy genre.

Unavailable for many years, this album is a cracking good listen and I can heartily recommend it!

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