Fantastic Themes - Felix Slatkin

Brass Pizzicato
Fantastic Themes
The Fantastic Strings Of Felix Slatkin
Liberty Premier LMM-13021

Liberty's upscale product feature Poly 120 Sound (or a heavy grade vinyl) and an expensive book-fold jacket featuring a die-cut cover (there is a square hole punched through the cover that allows the photo of the instruments headstocks to peek through).

Released and marketed side-by-side with Martin Denny's Exotica Suite and 50 Guitars Visit Hawaii, this is a pretty straight forward orchestrated easy-listening set that doesn't take many chances.
