Midnight On The Cliffs
Les Baxter And Orchestra
High Fidelity Recording T843
Let's start with the stunning cover. Love it!
The title track, the first song on the A side, Midnight On The Cliffs is a wonderful and dramatic piece. The next track is sort of a light pop vocal piece titled Wake The Town And Tell. The song is a jarring transition from the dramatic mood of the first track. Some of the vocal tracks seem out of place on this LP. The instrumentals work best helping to reinforce the "mood" the album cover sets.
This is some sort of mix that Capitol glosses over on the back cover. A mix between soundtrack titles from the movie "Julie" and some of Baxters other work.
