Track 1 - Moomin
Track 2 - Continental Gallop
Track 3 - Elizabethan Serenade
Track 4 - Hydro Project
Track 5 - Mannequin Melody
Track 6 - Prelude To Doom
Track 7 - Nurseryland
Track 8 - The Challenge
Track 9 - 5:52 From Victorloo
Track 10 - China
Track 11 - Practice Makes Perfect
Track 12 - A Lonely Affair
Track 13 - Tear It Up
Track 14 - Waving Corn

This collection mainly revolves around playful orchestration that is in the same mould as the music used in Looney Tunes cartoons, "Practice Makes Perfect" is also very familiar to me but I can't place where I've heard it before. Quality is maintained throughout and it's a whole lot of fun. Strangely there appears to be two different records that claim to be "Dance & Mood Music Vol.4", you might be able to read the track titles on the cover image and see they don't match up to those on the rip I have. Also what I suspect to be the original is by Paul Piot but the tracks listed above are by Clive Richardson, Walter Scott and Charles Williams amongst others. Does anyone have the lowdown for me? Whatever the story it doesn't diminish from the enjoyment contained within this record.

There was a Chappell Dance and Mood Music series which was cataloged with the DMM prefix and had 300 series numbers, and a Chappell Mood Music series with the CMM 200 numbers. I think what you have here is actually CMM 204. Never heard it tho, so thanks!

I confirm that's not DMM 304 from Paul Piot, here it is :

Mr. Craig, I have mp3 copies of Chappell CCM 304 by Paul Piot & CCM 204 by Clive Richardson et al.

After several exhaustive searches I still haven't been able to find the original artwork for the CCM 204 cover. I just substitute the Chappell Music logo...

I'm happy to send you my copy if you're interested.
