This disc is fun from beginning to end and sure to appeal to easy listening aficionados who were current when these songs were current, as well as hipsters who are a couple of years too late on the exotica bandwagon. Most of all, the disc will appeal to music lovers who love a nice melody and an interesting arrangement. Hard to Find Pop Instrumentals, Vol. 2 is rife with both.
