    Turning back the musical clock

    Mantovani was a staple of "easy listening" radio in the 50's and 60's. At the time, I wondered how the musicians played it without falling asleep, although I always thought it sounded nice. Time has a way of changing one's attitude, and the familiar sounds of Mantovani bring back memories. I found myself back in 1960, listening to WMAQ radio's "Sounds of the 60's" with host John Doremus. This kind of music didn't turn out to be what we think of when 60's music comes up these days, but on FM radio, Mantovani was much more common than Rock.
    I remember these songs on the radio in my childhood, without ever knowing what most of their names were. Some of the songs were popular hits even on 'top 40' stations, such as "Unchained Melody," "Theme from 'A Summer Place'", "Moon River," "Fly me to the Moon," "True Love," and "A Taste of Honey." I think my wife likes these better than I do, and I have played the CD 4 times since I bought it yesterday.
    This is background music, and intended to be that way. It does not get in the way of anything you want to do while the CD is playing, but the lush orchestrations are interesting on their own. Mantovani's was the best of the easy listening orchestras of that day, and he still rates his own bin in record stores.
