"I would like to state that this is really not a reissue of the 1967 album called "Monument Proudly Presents Boots Randolph With The Knightsbridge Strings and Voices," but is rather a reissue of the "Boots With Strings" album from 1966 with "Stranger On The Shore" and "Dear Heart" omitted.
The tracks on the "Boots Randolph With The Knightsbridge Strings and Voices" LP are Temptation/Somewhere My Love/More/Charade/It's Not Unusual/Cast Your Fate To The Wind/Who Can I Turn To/Theme From Black Orpheus/Misty/People/Love Letters
The "Boots With Strings" LP track listings: The Shadow of Your Smile/What Now My Love/Days of Wine and Roses/Yesterday/You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'/ What Kind of Fool Am I?/Moon River/Michelle/Stranger On The Shore/I Left My Heart In San Francisco/Dear Heart/Unchained Melody
The CD reissue of the Boots With Strings LP, retitled "Boots Randolph With The Knightsbridge Strings" track listings are The Shadow of Your Smile/Days of Wine and Roses/Yesterday/You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'/What Now My Love/What Kind of Fool Am I?/Moon River/Michelle/I Left My Heart In San Francisco/Unchained Melody
I give this CD 4 stars due to it not only being one of Boots' best albums, but they should have used the original LP title for the CD and included the 2 omitted tracks."
