Time For Listening - Richard Hayman

The Touch
Time For Listening
Richard Hayman And His Orchestra
Mercury Records MG 20103

Obscure mid-50s(?) release for harmonicist, composer and band leader, Richard Hayman.

Very groovy space age cover. Nothing like a 40 something year old man relaxing and smoking while his 20 something "friend" strokes his bachelor pad rug... so to speak.

There is one tidbit from the back cover that fans may find of note. "His (Hayman) sense of prankishness and amiable comedy landed him in bit parts in several Betty Grable movies.

Check out one of my other Hayman posts to sample his exotica album titled Voodoo!
