Impelling Dances Of Our Times - Enoch Light

And I Love Her
Impelling Dances Of Our Times
Enoch Light And His Orchestra
Command ABC RSSD 979-2

Here's a two record set released on Command after ABC purchased Light's label and started to cheapen the product. The jacket is a single pocket with the two records inside rather than the fancy book-fold normally produced by Command. The title is lackluster, especially for the early 70s and the cover art is dull and pointless. The music is probably reissued (Re-Produced for Two-Fer's by Don Thorn). However, all of the tunes play as though they were recorded together for this release, rather than cobbled together from various projects.

With all that said, the music is very good. As heard in the samples above, the collection features that 60s light pop Enoch Light touch that anyone who collects his works knows and loves.

    1. Happy Easter to you! I did indeed paste the same link into the page. Thanks much for letting me know! If the files seem to stop abruptly it is because the tracks almost play into each other.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
