Stanley Applewaite Plays In The Still Of The Night

Stanley Applewaite Plays
In The Still Of The Night
Music Of Cole Porter
George Norman Orchestra
Design DLP 36

There are several reverb laden vocal tracks on this album, but no mention if Applewaite is the vocalist.

From the back cover: Born in Sheffordshire in 1925, this young pianist made his professional debut at a local music hall at the tender age of nine. He played piano and recited "The Ballad of Lower Ipswich," a twenty minute long piece of saccharine prose written by his great Uncle Harry Applewaite. The short piano section was met with an enthusiastic response. The long dissertation concerning the problems of horsecarman in Lower Ipswich was greeted with nothing but a dull lull...

He is currently conducting the Norton Green Symphonia and has recently signed to score and conduct a new musical movie based on the life of Henry the Eighth.
