2 LPs on 1 CD: THE GREAT SOUND OF LES ELGART (1959)/IT'S DE-LOVELY (1961).
Liner Note Author: Curtis Brown.
The combination of these Les Elgart albums, The Great Sound of Les Elgart and It's De-Lovely, provide pleasant interpretations of pop standards. The familiar melodies of "These Foolish Things," "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World," and "It's De-Lovely" hold up exceptionally well. These LPs were originally released on Columbia Records in 1959 and 1961, and had been out of print until Collectables reissued them in 2000. ~ Al Campbell
