Music For An Arabian Night - Ron Goodwin And His Orchestra

Music For An Arabian Night
Ron Goodwin And His Concert Orchestra
Parlophone/EMI Records - England PMC 1109
1959

Fun cheesecake cover on this imported LP. The album can be found online for purchase/download from a variety of sources so I'll pass on posting a sample.

Ron Goodwin was a prolific soundtrack composer doing scores for films such as Village Of The Damned, Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines and Force 10 From Navarone.

The recording is an interesting blend of space age mood and international folk influences. Nice laid back set.
