This is one of the most well known library music compilations and it delivers a nifty batch of easy / pop groovers from the likes of Hawkshaw, Dale and Mansfield. Personal favs include the swirling "Rio Magic", "Sporting Highlights", the spy jazz inspired "Chase That Car" and the dreamy "Convenience Shopping". I would suggest that most of these tracks are from KPM's but a few may be from Syd Dale's Amphonic label. It's probably unfair to draw a comparison between this music and t.v dinners because I think it has more in common with champagne and caviar. Just make sure you eat up otherwise there will be no dessert!

Yup, this one can be found easily on CD. I think I have a copy myself. It's a rather light-hearted affair but still a worthy listen, especially if you don't know these composers (there's liner notes in the sleeve, if my memory serves me correctly).

One of the best albums for groovy tunes!

Highly recommended!

Can you re-up this by any chance? It's long out of print and I've been looking for it for eons!
