Ok folks we are now going on a musical journey with a few surprises on the way !! we are having a BiG and last dip into the musical tastes of "Aunty Jean"..(AKA) AJ !! .so hold onto your hats as we start off with a good party sing song before we go "Cosmic" on a journey maybe to Venus !!..were all the women are !!...as in the quote by "John Gray"... "Men are from Mars & Women are from Venus" !!!!...so altogether now 123 !!!
This Mantovani L/P has the addition of two Piano's " Rawicz & Landauer"
Rawicz and Landauer were an immensely popular piano duo team that performed from 1932 to 1970. They were initially based in Vienna, Austria, but moved to the United Kingdom in the early part of their career. They were known for their arrangements of popular classics.
Marjan (or Maryan) Rawicz (1898 – 30 January 1970) was Polish. He studied in Poland, and in Vienna under Richard Robert, and also studied law at the University of Kraków, playing the piano at seaside resorts in his holidays to make ends meet.
Walter Landauer (4 September 1910 – 4 August 1983) was born in Vienna. He studied at the Vienna Music Academy and under Emil von Sauer.
4. The Legend of The Glass Mountain
We are certainly having a good mixture in this BIG dip into AJ's record cabinet so lets go a bit on the quiet side and relax as the Lady on the cover has (I wonder if that could be AJ !!!)

was in Holland and bought this back !!...its a great L/P Thank AJ !! Thanks !!
The Edison Award is annual Dutch music prize, awarded for outstanding achievements in the music industry. It is one of the oldest music awards in the world, having been presented since 1960.
4. A Boy Named Charlie Brown
A trip to the cinema now to hear the music of "Maurice Jarre"....these soundtracks to me only make sense if you have actually seen the film...so if you have not seen it then it will just be a collection of music....The main them "Lara's Theme" just about manages to get into most of the tracks....But as a selection of film music its fine !!
7. Lara's Theme
Thanks AJ for some music from the 30's & 40's to get your feet tapping !!..it says that these are the original recording from way back beginning 1933....somebody has done a good job of transfering them from what I imagine would be old shellac 78's....unless of course they have the original masters !!.....I think that the 30's would be to early for Tapes so I imagine that they would have recorded directly onto a master Disc !!....anyway just listen what musicly turned people on in the 30's !!
10. Nobody's Sweetheart
A combination of Swing band and Brass band gels pretty well but the emphasis is definatley on "Swing" with the marching sound taking a second place !!...But its a good different sound and these days its great to hear something new !!
