Music For Memories - Paul Weston

Music For Memories
Paul Weston And His Orchestra
Capitol Records  H225 (10 inch reissue of BD-37)

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the original cover art.

From Billboard - January 28, 1947 (review of BD-37): Paul Weston pours out eight sides of sweet nostalgic stuff in this folio. It's thoroly (Billboard's spelling) relaxing music-making as his 30-piece ork emphasizes the melody line thruout (Billboard's spelling) and holds to an easy terpsable (Billboard's spelling) beat. His arrangements give sugary Strads the upper hand, rounded out by reeds and muted brass. It's a cinch for sales, including such standards as "Deep Purple," "Somebody Loves Me," "I'll Be Seeing You," "Love Locked Out," "All The Things You Are," "East Of The Sun," "Blue Moon" and "You Go To My Head." Album cover is dressed in tasteful hues. Inside cover contains studious pose of the maestro plus gushy spiel about his genius. All sides are suitable for juke trade at locations where they want it smooth and dreamy.
