The middle of a great trilogy of easy-listening compilations
on 31 March 2005
Following the success of Music to watch girls by, this volume contains further classic easy-listening music from the fifties and sixties. This type of music has a significant fan base in Britain as the more recent series of compilations (Memories are made of this) proves.
This collection features two songs each by Andy Williams (Can't help falling in love, Almost there), Tony Bennett (The best is yet to come, I left my heart in San Francisco) and Doris Day (Whatever will be will be, Our day will come). Perez Prado also features on two tracks - one with Rosemary Clooney (Sway) and one solo (Guaglione).
There are other famous classics here including Something stupid (Frank amd Nancy Sinatra), Born free (Matt Monro), Raindrops keep falling on my head (B J Thomas), Memories are made of this (Dean Martin), By the time I get to Phoenix (Glen Campbell), I couldn't live without your love (Petula Clark), Where are you now my love (Jackie Trent), The more I see you (Chris Montez), Fever (Peggy Lee), What a difference a day makes (Dinah Washington), Catch a falling star (Perry Como), Windmills of your mind (Noel Harrison), What a wonderful world (Louis Armstrong) and MacArthur Park (Richard Harris) - and that's just a few of them.
This is a magnificent compilation of easy listening music from the fifties and sixties. With 40 tracks, there is plenty to enjoy.
