Symphony Of The Birds - Johan Dalgas Frisch

Loch Lomond
Symphony Of The Birds
Recorded by Johan Dalgas Frisch
MGM Records E/SE-4442

From the back cover: These birds have a special interest: they are among the world's most exotic. Their home is the lush jungle-land of Brazil. Much of their music was recorded for the first time by Johan Dalgas Frisch, the Brazilian engineer and ornithologist who is probably the most prolific natural sound disk maker in the world. Some of the most beautiful of bird calls have been collected by Mr. Frisch for this album, and deftly combined with specially made arrangements. – liner notes by Faith Crumpacker.

The producers got lucky when they mixed the sample above, however the rest of the set features a more annoying and thoughtless blend of bland stock music and environmental recordings.
