Volume Two-Ten Years On

Continuing on from last week, here is the second volume of For Hi-Fi Living, a collection of mid-century music that's sure to be of interest to those of you who are interested in such things.  This week is a virtual Mitchell Parish festival, he co-writes five of the twelve tracks.  Other than that, there's only the vaguely defined theme of romance.  Our conductor this week is Tony Osborne and the interludes are provided by harps instead of pianos.  Other than that, it's pretty much business as usual.  As I remember the series, things don't get interesting until later on, and interesting is very subjective in this usage.  First shared back in 2007, here is the remastered Tony Osborne And His Orchestra-Hands Across The Table (RCA Custom RAL-1002, Mono, 1957).
