Thank you and goodbye!

Well, I think it's now time to let you know that I have decided not to do any more posts here on Easy Listening World. 

It is not far away from ten years of existence for my blog which has had many thousands of visitors, a fact I will always be very proud of. I believe that I have been able to continue when so many similar blogs have stopped or been closed is due to my care ensuring that I was only offering what was unable elsewhere and not posting too frequently, the only point to the blog being a love for a style of music which has generally been consigned to the past, ignored by record companies as not being worthy of re-issue to a rather small group of enthusiasts.

I have for the entire length of the blog enjoyed sharing my discoveries with you all, the only currency I would consider accepting being your comments, however I have often felt that considering the number of downloads and visitors against the number of comments, it seems an extremely small proportion of visitors have been prepared to offer comment on my posts.

I realise that I have made no new posts in recent weeks and months, but in that time the only new comments that have come have been meaningless spam, and boy, have there have been a lot of them.  For that reason I have generally stopped reading them and that has taken away much of my  motivation for continuing to share my collection here.

I am not going to close or delete anything, but obviously links over time will expire and not be replaced.

Thanks for all the support, visits and comments from everyone over these ten years, particularly  the personal connections I have made; without you it would not have lasted this long!

So, in the words of The Two Ronnies, it's goodnight from me (and goodnight from him)!

All the best,

Non Stop Pepsi Party - Denny Wright and the Hustlers (1974)


This was one of the first LPs I found when I first started looking round the local charity shops, some years ago, but I have seen it again since, several times, the one ripped here being the one in the best condition.

It is around 54 minutes in length, and top quality from start to finish! Featuring the Shout About Pepsi track, as featured on the first Sound Gallery album, here it appears as part of a medley with Tequila and La Bamba.

Other highlights include fine versions of I Can See Clearly Now, Something, Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da, very smooth sounding covers of Without You,Love Is Blue, and Sounds of Silence, with a nice rock 'n' roll medley to finish the album.

Every track is a winner, the album is one of my personal favourites, the track I post as preview, Roll Over Beethoven never fails to have me jiving round the room!

I hope you enjoy it and please leave a comment!

Christmas Wonderland - Ron Goodwin & His Orchestra (1967)


#New Zippyshare link#

Here it is, yet again, the best Easy Listening Christmas album!

For those who do not know this album, it is just the most festive and traditional Christmas album and it never fails to get you into the holiday mood!

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

Hawaiian Christmas - Wout Steenhuis (1981)


Here we have a very nice traditional Christmas album from the master of Hawaiian guitar.

Featuring 12 Christmas standards arranged in his mellow guitar style, it is very nice and Christmassy, and it well worth a listen if you have enjoyed the Tijuana Christmas album or my post of the Ron Goodwin Christmas album.

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

Out Of The Box (Medley) - The Wright Orchestra (1981)

Rather nice medley of classic UK & US 70's & 80's TV themes, obviously made to cash in on the 1981 craze for medleys, Stars On 45, Back To The 60's, Hooked On Classics being more successful than this, however.

The B side is a storming disco funk track, also well worth hearing, too

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