Sound Effects - Strange Sounds
Here is another one of those odd LPs I find now and then at the thrift. In this instance, the record is made up of a number of short, early and spacey strange electronic samples nicely cued for production work.
This Is Stereo!
Printed and manufactured by Crown Album Corp.
The tracks are nicely cobbled together on this Stere-o-craft promotional tool. The jacket notes mention that Craft Recording got into the stereophonic "field" in 1957.
Unlike many stereo promotions, the stereo on this disc actually sounds pretty awesome. Similar promotions also tend to feature a mixed bag of audio approaches, but the track selection on this LP, thankfully, focuses largely on lounge flavored jazz pieces.
From the back cover: One of Stere-o-craft's more valuable musical achievements has been to bring back to records the lyrical jazz clarinet of Joe Marsala. I Cried For You also includes harpist Adele Girard (Mrs. Marsala), trumpeter Rex Stewart, pianist Dick Cary, guitarist Carmen Mastren, drummer Johnny Blowers, and bassist Pat Merola.
