Thought those fanatics at Complete 60s who brought you those remarkable 60s instrumental box sets would be resting on their laurels? Not a chance! It may be hard to believe they could outdo themselves, but wait till you see what theyve been up to.
Feast your eyes on this new 31-track collection of carefully selected 50s instrumental gems so filled with captivating musical energy and enhanced by state-of-the-art audio restoration technology that once the music starts, youll wish it could go on forever. This is a jukebox of unforgettable melodies and uncategorizable confections, from authentic Mexican marimba music to percolating organ boogies to novel zither, harp, and harmonica solos.
Fully half of these hit instrumentals have never seen the light of day on CD and they almost certainly have never been available in this fidelity since their original recording sessions well over half a century ago. And the excitement doesnt end there. Among these intriguing and musically varied rarities youll find more than a half dozen major hits that are debuting here in full three-dimensional wide stereo.
You owe to yourself to listen to the SOUND SAMPLES below to HEAR how amazing The Poor People Of Paris (Les Baxter, #1), Canadian Sunset (Winterhalter/Heywood, #2) and Tequila (The Champs, #1) sound in STEREO for the very first time. But dont stop there! Sample some of the less-familiar tunes, too, and youll see why these infectious melodies will stay with you long after the CD has stopped playing.
Collectors and casual fans of the genre alike, strap yourself in and prepare to take a magical musical journey with this spectacular new offering from Complete 60s. All original hit versions carefully mastered by two top sound engineers, plus notes & biographies for all 30 artists. Original reissue collections just dont get more creative than this.
