Beecham,Sargent,Barbirolli-they'd never have done anything like this but times were a changing as more radical conductors appeared ready to cut disco versions of well loved classical themes.
At the same time the LSO were cutting classical styled versions of rock standards
For Classical the boundaries changed to include theatre writers like Rodgers & Hammerstein and selections of traditional folk songs.
Some of these became chart albums.The snobbery once attached to classical music was on the way out along with The Gramophone.The new magazines would review jazz and show tunes.Elvis Costello,Paul McCartney,Deep Purple even Jimi Hendrix (via Nigel Kennedy) were about to enter the classical catalogue.
ELO and Queen were modelled on the classical format.
Roll over Beethoven had never been more appropriate

If you were to buy the album with the three disks in that are on this site you will get this disk so it would be pointless buying it separate, unlike myself and now I have learnt my lesson and will be careful the next time I buy from Amazon. Be careful there are two albums which are the same on this site only buy one of them do not be fooled.

Great, great music that you can sing along too. Joyfully passes the time in traffic or at home relaxing. I received it on time and it was well-packaged. It was a great bargain and very relaxing.

One clip melds into the next and the beat never stops. I thoroughly enjoyed this when it came out years ago and I'm still "hooked" now.

Un trabajo excelente de Louis Clark y la Real Orquesta Filarmónica, tengo 3 CD's (Hooked on Classics 1, 2 y 3) y estoy a la caza de más.
¿Tienes la curiosidad de entrar al mundo de la música clásica y piensas que es aburrida?, prueba esto y tendras un punto de vista diferente, por supuesto que la musica clásica no es pop pero te dá una buena idea de como es.
An excellent work from Louis Clark & the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, I have 3 CD (Hooked on Classics 1, 2 and 3) and I'm looking for more.
Do you have the curiosity to enter in the classical music world and you think it's bored?, try this and you'll have a different point of view, of course classical music is not pop but it will give you a good idea how it is.

Good but not as "original" as 1 or 2 29 Jan. 2014

Continuing follow up to the collection. Stretched a bit, but still enjoyable. I listen to #1 and 2 more than #3. But its still fun to hear.
Hooked On...Well, All KINDS of Music Apparently 11 Nov. 2011
By Gregor von Kallahann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whether or not the HOOKED ON CLASSICS series is an effective introduction to classical music is moot. It would be fascinating to survey some of the reviewers who have posted below to see if they've actually gone on to sample other classical works, gone to orchestral concerts or started listening to classical radio. Or was their exposure limited to this series or to just one disc in the series. I'm not being judgmental here--just curious. If it turned out that HOOKED ON CLASSICS was really little more than a novelty on the order, say, of "A Fifth of Beethoven" would that matter at all, or are the works of interest in and of themselves.

It's a serious question (or a series of serious questions). I didn't grow up listening to classical but over time did develop an ear for it. Once in a while, someone will ask me just how I "got into" it, and it's never an easy question to answer. But it did have something to do with increasing exposure, over time, to the real thing. When I was in high school and college, I listened a bit to rock music that leaned on classical music to some extent (the Nice, the Moody Blues) and enjoyed some of that, but even before so-called progressive rock got really big in the 1970s, much of that music lost its luster for me. It seemed be be straining to be taken seriously. And, as an intro to classical music, well, I think FANTASIA actually worked better.

Louis Clark, the conductor and arranger for the HOOKED ON series, has roots in "symphonic rock," as it turns out. He used to do arrangements for ELO back in the day. The HOOKED series, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, seems to be another attempt to meld classical and popular music, this time with minus the rock band but with a steady LinnDrum accompaniment (which is sometimes effective, and sometimes kind of irritating, to tell the truth). When it does work, it does so in a light classical, pops concert kind of way. The medleys are imaginatively thought out and cleverly arranged. You can play "Guess the Composer" when listening to the two "Journey Through the Classics" tracks, and to some extent with the medleys entitled "Hooked On Marching" and "Journey Through America" (pretty easy if it's your home turf).

Much of the material here has folk roots or stems from the musical theater. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but the title HOOKED ON CLASSICS might be a tad misleading. The last track is a very enjoyable medley called "Hooked On Rodgers and Hammerstein," and while you can make the case that R&H wrote "classic musicals," it is, to some extent, genre bending to lump them in with Haydn, Vivaldi and Strauss, as Clark and Co. do here. In some ways, it's kind of unsettling to listen to a record that BEGINS with "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and ends with strains from "Oklahoma."

Nonetheless, it's all a fun listen, and maybe for some listeners it really could be an effective Classical Music 101 course. Purists may not care for it, but they probably don't go to Pops concerts either. Louis Clark is, I'm guessing, "hooked on" all sort of music. And that's not a bad thing at all.
