Nelson Riddle - 101 Strings

Here's another one of the handful of 101 Strings albums that is an outstanding collectible. The vibe is one of late 60s/early 70s orchestrated light pop. Saying that you might hear these tunes as a TV or movie soundtrack might be a rough assessment. The arrangements are not cheesy (although that's all good...), but sophisticated light pop.

Engaging stuff all the way through.
