Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: LES & LARRY ELGART (1958)/LES ELGART ON TOUR (1959).
Arranger: Bill Finegan.
The sessions for these two Les & Larry Elgart albums, originally released on Columbia in 1959, didn't differ much, with a focus on standards like "Biding My Time," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "Strike Up the Band," "That Old Black Magic," and "How Deep Is the Ocean (How High Is the Sky." Elgart connoisseurs will be delighted by this collection, containing the original cover art and song sequence, but the casual listener should initially start with the big band compilations that collect the Elgarts' recordings from the late '40s. ~ Al Campbell
