Morton Gould--Elliot Everett and His Orch. (Varsity VLP6041)
Another Record Corp. of America classic, only this time in very acceptable sound. In fact, the sound quality is pretty astonishing for Royale/Varsity. (Note that the jacket says Varsity, and the label says Royale. Typical fake-RCA attention to detail.)
Five excellent compositions by American composer and conductor Morton Gould, plus two filler tracks not by him--Brazilian Boogie and Third-Man (sic) Theme. A perfectly good ten-inch LP, which makes it superb by Royale standards. "Recorded in Europe," says the label. Elliot Everett is a pseudonym.
I used my 3.5 elliptical LP stylus, and it was the right choice.
To the Gould: Morton Gould--Elliot Everett and his Orch. (Varsity/Royale 6041)
