Serenade For Love - Richard Hayman

Americano
Serenade For Love
Richard Hayman And His Orchestra
Mercury MG 20115

It is difficult to pinpoint the date of release. I suspect 1958 or 59 from the cover. And I have to love the cover. This was back in the day when NO meant YES!

The tracks are pleasant easy listening pop. Some songs seem to have a little reverb added to the string section which gives the sound a bit of space age life. Dansero is a nice Latin track, The song Tears On Satin is cool featuring Hayman playing his harmonica. But I like Americano, the second track on the A side is the more groovy offering.

Hayman's album, Voodoo is still one of my favorite albums.

  1. NICE stuff! Looks like Kim Novak on the cover. But, she actually looks dead. Hayman is fabulous!
