CD Reviews

Great music--- waaay too short.

"This soundtrack is taken from Les's TV special "Music From The 60's". After a brief description before each song, Les breaks free and lets his orchestra soar. The music is truly outstanding which makes this CD all the more frustrating. It's understandable why the sound quality is only fair being that the audio was taken directly from Les' video copy of the special (the quality is pretty close to what you'll hear on the samples here). What I don't understand is why the short playlist? At the end of the CD, Les says "It's hard to believe that an hour could go by so quickly." He ain't kidding--- this CD is only slightly longer than 15 minutes!! If this was an hour long special, why not include every track? However, the music that is included is incredibly well done. If Baxter's pop-type music ever tended to get sappy, none of that is evident on this CD. It also contains perhaps the most solid version of "Quiet Village" that I have ever heard."
Too short - too much - too bad

"As the previous reviewer mentioned, this disc is way to short (20 minutes, including chats and applause), and I have a sneaky suspision that the actual show was split between this disc and "By Popular Request", another way-to-short album put out by the same folks.
As always, the music is top-notch, but keep in mind, at the current list price, you're paying about 70 cents per listening minute."
