Quiet Nights In (28 Instrumental Evergreens) - The Nick Ingman and Tony Hatch Orchestras (1983)

 
 
 
#REPOST#
 
This big double album, originally posted in September 2008, features 28 classics of 70's and 80's pop played in a very smooth Easy style by the orchestras of the great Nick Ingman and Tony Hatch.
 
Posted in response to requests for more pop song versions, it is one of my favourites and is a fine example of the sound of 80's Easy Listening before the synths and drum machines took over!
 
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
