Description by OLDIES.com:

Originally released in 1969 and 1970 on the Columbia label, these two titles are gems from the Ray Conniff catalog. Highlights include his self-penned "Power Of Love" and his covers of George Harrison's "Something" and Burt Bacharach's "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head." Incidentally, the woman on the cover of the compact disc (from the cover of "Jean") is Conniff's wife, Vera.

Product Description:

2 LP's on 1 CD: JEAN (1969)/BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER (1970).
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Ray Conniff LPs: Jean and Bridge Over Troubled Water. Originally issued in 1969 and 1970, respectively, each of the 22 tracks has a continuity dominated by easy listening (or elevator music) versions of popular songs from the '60s. Highlights include "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "Leaving on a Jet Plane," "Honey Come Back," and "Everybody's Talkin'." This is an enjoyable reissue from the massive Ray Conniff catalog on Columbia Records, but most listeners would be better-served with one of the many compilations in print. ~ Al Campbell

Rating 5.0 Jean/Bridge Over Troubled Water Music Lover: from New Jersey USA -- January, 29, 2004

These are two legendary Conniff LPs.."Jean" has a gorgeous picture of Mr. C's wife, Vera on the cover and has an incredible version of Tom Jone's "Love Me Tonight," which became a staple song on Ray's concerts....See "Live a Tahoe.." Noteworthy are his arrangements of "Oliver'" Jean and a Ray Conniff composition, "The Power Of Love."..Bridge Over Trouble is a MASTERPIECE LP with another Ray Conniff original, "Someone." The arrangements here are amoungst the best...Ray's solo (Yes, RaY SINGS too!!) on Honey Come Back will leave you breathless......The arrangement on
"Everybody's Talking" with that guitar riff will give "Nilsson" a run for his money...And of course, the sweetness of the female chorus on "Leaving On A Jet Plane....." Wow! This LP now given to US to enjoy on CD is Worth A MILLION BUCKS..It was a Classic when it was released and sounds as fresh today as it did back in the 70's...Don't PASS THIS ONE UP!!
