Strings at their best.

"This is the origional Mantovani Orchestra and from the opening strings of 'Charmaine', you'll be entranced. After he died, Stanley Black took over his Orchestra but didn't meet the success of the origional orchestra. A must have for Mantovani fans."
The Definitive Mantovani Recording!
Thomas E. DeJulio | Bronxville, NY USA | 07/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The fact that this recording is still one of the bestsellers of the Mantovani discography some THIRTY-FOUR YEARS AFTER ITS INITIAL RELEASE is testimony to the endurance of the maestro's music and the golden classics heard on this CD. All of the hallmarks of the authentic Mantovani sound are found on these selections. Americans who may find this recording amidst all the record albums stored in family attics may see one difference on this CD: the song Games That Lovers Play which appeared on the American release was replaced by True Love on this British version. Both are among Monty's golden hits so no one is being shortchanged because the CD sound only enhances the beauty of every selection Mantovani creatively scored. Those already enamored to the luxurious sound of Mantovani will "truly love" this CD. Those unfamiliar with Mantovani's orchestrations who have not yet discovered that they possess the ear for "rubato" will become hooked on these selections, the first dozen of many, many more marvelous string arrangements on Mantovani CDs still enthralling listeners some 50 years after Mantovani's signature piece, Charmaine, hit the airwaves. Long live Monty's music!"
A great collection of Montovani music

"If you have only one CD of Montovani to buy, this is the one to get. Beware once you do, you may become a huge fan like the rest of us and this will be one of many."
