Synopsis

Album Description
We've been trying to license this album for years; it includes the ever-seductive 1968 hit `Love Is Blue', which has to rank as one of THE great instrumental hits of the '60s, and in fact was the first instrumental to top the charts since the Tornados' `Telstar' way back in 1962! The album also stayed on top of the charts for five weeks, and that we've finally been able to land it exclusively for our Collectors' Choice Music label is almost as big a surprise as the hit must have been for French arranger Paul Mauriat himself, whose previous three albums for Philips had been greeted with indifference by the record-buying public. But he sure did bottle lightning here; the melody alone is irresistible, but Mauriat's deft use of harpsichord, horns, strings and an ever so slightly rocking beat creates sweet ear candy for pop music lovers of all ages and stripes (and the album cover has a certain je ne sais quoi, too)! Also includes beautifully-arranged and orchestrated versions of `Somethin' Stupid'; `Penny Lane'; `This Is My Song'; `Seuls au Monde (Alone in the World)'; `Inch Allah'; `There's a Kind of Hush (All over the World)'; `Puppet on a String'; `Adieu a la Nuit (Adieu to the Night)', and `Mama'.
