Golden Saxophone Hits - Sil Austin

Peter Gunn
Golden Saxophone Hits
Sil Austin
Mercury Stereo SR 60663
1962

Austin blends a 50s sax vibe with a touch of 60s light pop on this pressing made fresh by his energetic approach. The Mercury engineering is terrific as usual and really makes the audio pop. Of course, the cover of Peter Gunn is the stand-out track.

Apparently, Austin made over 30 albums for Mercury (see Austin's wiki page for details). That is an impressive track record.
