Moon River: Great Instrumental Hits of the '60s

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
The 1960s were really the last stand for instrumentals on the pop charts, and the decade produced dozens and dozens of instrumental hits before the market tightened and then all but vanished as the decades marched on. This three-disc set, which has a decidedly British slant, collects gems from this last golden age of the pop instrumental, including "Moon River" by the Mantovani Orchestra, "Green Onions" by Booker T. & the MG's, and "Lonely Bull" by the Tijuana Brass, among others.
