Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover and notes excerpt.
From the back cover: Nothing is too much to challenge the versatility of this group. Clem Low is featured at the piano with "Theme From A Summer Place" and on "Midnight Cowboy" on which he plays the Clavinetta, while on others he solo's from time to time on his newest acquisition, the Clarinet-C. Archie Grant, Arthur's bassist, gives a warm interpretation on the guitar on "Everybody's Talkin'" and Harold Chang's rhythms are heard throughout but especially on the lovely now sweeping the music world "Abergavenny," where he pours out the low beats from the bass drum, part of his specially designed Perl President fiberglass drum set. Arthur, with his masterful touch and dynamics, molds the pieces together into a marriage of the romantic rhythms of Polynesia and the melodies of Today's Greatest Hits. – Lee Palmer
