Sounds Fantastic!

Bye Bye Blues
Sounds Fantastic!
RCA Victor
PRS-210
1966

Here's a promotional tool RCA created to help sell the portable stereo as pictured on the back jacket.

Promotional albums can be a sad hodgepodge of styles in the effort to create universal appeal. RCA didn't approach this set in that fashion. This is a decent space age light pop album. The tunes seem to work pretty well together, so they don't seem to be cobbled together from a variety of sources. In other words... it's seems as though these songs may have been recorded just for this album.

The example above is credited to the following artists Al Hurt, Frankie Randal, Living Guitars, Three Suns and Esquivel.
