Music For Nervous People - John Clegg And His Orchestra

Speak Easy
Music For Nervous People
John Clegg And His Orchestra
RCA Victor

Interesting title and cover illustration. I gathered from the cover art that the music might sound sort of "frantic". However, the set is smooth and easy, intended to help CALM down "nervous people".

While I may have expect the "nervous", I love the soothing, dreamy music that plays through much like a Jackie Gleason concept LP.

Speak Easy
Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder
Thinking Of You
Yours Sincerely
Through A Thousand Dreams
Sea Shells
It Can't Be Wrong
So Help Me (If I Don't Love You)
When Day Is Done
My Dream Is Yours
Sweet Dreams

  1. Just found this LP at a flee market this past Sunday and bought it ($1) because I loved the funny cover. Listening to it as I am doing updates on my @!!^# website and trust me this music has got to keep me calm or else!! Nice orchestration, wavy even watery melodies...sounds like it's coming from some romantic movie soundtrack. Mmmmmmm:-))


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
