Charles Randolph Grean Sounde

The Original Hit
Quentin's Theme
Charles Randolph Grean Sounde
Vocals by Robin Grean
Ranwood Records R 8055

Quirky set of mood/easy music. The early synth/moog and Robin Grean's (relation?) dreamy vocal touches help create Grean's "own style".

From the back cover: Charles Randolph Grean has been responsible for many great record hits. The first recording session that he ever conducted and arranged was Nat King Cole's "Christmas Song". Then followed "Riders In The Sky" with Vaughn Monroe, "The Thing" (which Grean composed_ with Phil Harris, "Sweet Violets" (another Grean composition) with Dianh Shore, "Green Door" with Jim Lowe, and many, many others. Through his many years of experience as Artist and Repertoire Director at RCA Victor and Dot Records, plus many independent productions, he has finally found a formula for his own style; a perfect blend of the old and the new, a "nostalgic" modern sound". "Quentin's Theme" caught his ear while watching "Dark Shadows" on TV, and has brought him his first hit record under his own name.
