This 3 disc boxed set shows off the talents of British composer, arranger, and band leader Tony Hatch in great style!
Disc #1 is made up of 20 songs composed by Tony, played by his fine band. I especially like "Music to Watch Girls By" and the old Jeri Southern hit "An Occasional Man". Nothing but good tunes in the bunch and that can be said for all 3 discs.
Disc #2 consists of 20 hits Tony composed for artists such as Petula Clark, The Searchers, and others. Even the few songs you may not recognize sound terrific here with the original vocalists singing. (7 sung by Petula).
Disc #3 holds 20 more, these made up of TV Theme Songs composed and played by Mr. Hatch....most are familiar and sound refreshingly good here! (Ben Casey, Naked City, MASH, The Odd Couplemn among them) You may not know too much about Tony Hatch, but you'll be amazed at how many of his songs were (some still are!) big hits in various realms for numerous big name artists and TV shows. I recommend this set very highly.
