The Shadow Of Your Smile - Arthur Lyman
HI FI Records Life Series L 1033
This one is available on CD, as all Lyman LPs maybe so I will not be posting a sample.
It's Arthur Lyman day up here in The Atomic Attic!
One of my favorite tunes on this LP is a cover of Yesterday (Beatles 1965). This album seems to have a touch more of a 60s lounge jazz feel to it. The first track on the B side, Marobi, is typical great Lyman exotica. There is also a curious rocking cover of Hang On Sloopy found on the B side that sounds as though the group just decided to jam to fill out the record.
