5.0 out of 5 stars More Enoch and great sound effects in stereo..., 23 Mar 2013
C. FULLER (Brixham, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
Like the earlier albums on the Command label these additional Enoch Light albums are quite spectacular particularly if listened to through your headphones which is how I always judge the quality of a recording these days. After so many years of not hearing these albums they have oddly acquired a freshness that for me has not become dated and the opening number Easy to Love is a well or he started number and Old Devil Moon likewise a delight. moving onto the second album On the Street Where You Live & Make Someone Happy both get my vote as outstanding. It is Sepia that we must thank for bringing these recordings back to our attention in such excellent form and with original album covers & notes. Great value as always. More please if that is possible...

5.0 out of 5 stars STEREO PERFECTION FROM VINYL TO CD, 15 Mar 2013
A. POLLOCK (PLYMOUTH, DEVON United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
Taking advantage of the late Fifties introduction of stereophonic sound, these early Sixties Command albums were amongst many such concept orchestral collections released, with their spacious openness, startling "ping pong" effects plus other gimmicks fully utilising the new technology in a way not possible with monaural/ monophonic sound reproduction. They were ideal for auditioning new hi-fi equipment and as a talking point with listening friends and family but such gimmickry soon passed its sell-by date with such mood albums reigning in the excesses.

However, fifty years later, transfer to digital disc revives their audio power with two dozen tracks roaming over the song spectrum with familiar standards EASY TO LOVE, LET'S DO IT, OLD DEVIL MOON amongst many that share track-space with the then more recent ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVE, MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY and THE LOOK OF LOVE, with space also allowing the inclusion of the Latin-rhythmic EL RELICARIO and ADIOS MUCHACHOS and SOLITUDE giving a spot for Ellington.

Whilst most collectors' may have long accepted stereo as normal, even the most jaded listener will find the effects of these two albums impressive; even more so when listened through headphones. It's worth noting that orchestrator/conducter Enoch Light (1905-1978) had the required gravitas as classical violinist, bandleader and recording engineer to achieve such great results. This welcome release will encourage those with worn vinyl copies to update to Sepia' s pristine remastered CD clarity with the original album notes giving the necessary technical information.
