Volume 11 For Hi-Fi Living

The wait is over, it's time for another installment of Hi-Fi Living! I know it's been a while, but I've been busy on other things. Nice weather means I am out and about taking pictures, so it's tougher to find time to record records. But I made some time today, and here is the result. Please download and enjoy Tony Osborne And His Orchestra-A Trip To Romance-Vol. 11 For Hi-Fi Living (RCA Custom RAL-1011, 1957). Only one more record to go and we'll have the whole set. (We heard from Tony Osborne earlier in the series, in case that name sounds familiar.)

Ernie (Not Bert),

Some very nice music, once again, from Tony Osborne And His Orchestra!
From the liner notes: "Here's your ticket to romance, to lands of musical enchantment which you can visit from the comfort of your own armchair. Every cherished song tells its own special tale of the joys and sorrows of love. This is listening with a lift and a lilt, music that's a charming tribute to sentimental sweethearts both old and young. The musical arrangements are stunning, the high fidelity sparkles as never before, and the merry sound of the celeste tinkling between tunes adds a cheerful note as well as a mark of distinction."

W.O.W.

That certainly says it all (and almost makes me want to be an ad-man)! The liner-notes on some of these albums from the fifties and sixties are almost as amazing as the music and the art-work!

Ernie, Thank You for sharing the music!

Ernie,

It's very difficult to compare the various volumes and consider any of them to be better than others, but I would say that this one is pretty much one of the best.

I have to agree with what sunlion said above.

Just one suggestion - with the final volume I think you should again post the list of the whole series for the benefit of new visitors to your blog so that they won't have to miss out (that is, if the links are all still working).

Thanks so much.

All the best.

Ernie,

I'm a little late in getting to the last 2 volumes in the series, but I wanted to thank you again for sharing these with us.

Like Mel said above, it may be difficult to compare the different volumes in the series, but this album has been my favorite, in listening to it on vinyl over and over.

All the best,
Cousin Oliver
