Format: Audio CD
Recalling the late Fifties/early Sixties and the introduction of stereophonic sound, these two 1961-released albums in the Command series were amongst a flurry of orchestral LP's promoting the spacious and startling sound advantages of the new stereophonic technology in comparison with the previous boxed-in monaural or monophonic reproduction. Home hi-fi units certainly brought forth the width and depth of such sound marvels and Enoch Light (1905-1978) and His Orchestra were amongst the top contenders for such orchestral spendour.

STEREO 35 MM was recorded in the sacred environs of Carnegie Hall, New York, with the repertoire strictly confined to the great standards. However, their arrangements reveal a startling range of innovation and HEAT WAVE, I'VE GOT A CRUSH ON YOU, ZING WENT THE STRINGS OF MY HEART and I'LL SEE YOU AGAIN are romantically challenged with strings and other key instrumentation. FAR AWAY PLACES does just that with nods towards WALTZING MATILDA (Australia), THE THIRD MAN THEME (Vienna) and HOW ARE THINGS IN GLOCCA MORRA? (Ireland) but also latching on to some then-current novelty hits THE POOR PEOPLE OF PARIS,, BANANA BOAT SONG, CALCUTTA and LISBON ANTIGUA. There's also a degree of humour present in the arrangements with MIMI a fine example and a chorus often brought in for additional gravitas.

Both albums are a joyful listening experience echoing the type of light music rarely recorded nowadays so we have to thank Sepia for digging deep to reveal these glistening treasures in remastered CD sound.Fulsome notes include a full explanation regarding the intrumental line-up for each track with Sepia's usual high-grade presentation making this a welcome release.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The 24 tracks here come from 2 albums dating from 1961 called Stereo 35/MM and Far Away Places. The sound achieved on the first album is intense making you feel as if you were right there with the musicians. The music is film related and is now of its time with wonderful orchestral pieces from many of the great composers of the 20th century. The second album takes us around the world and provides so many different musical sounds and the inclusion of voices, exotic percussion, harpsichord and wonderful stereo recording. All of this adds up to a musical e pertinence not to be missed. The original liner notes are reproduced and the sound transfers are excellent. Price wise a good deal and another thumbs up for Sepia.
