The Electric Eclectics of Dick Hyman is a wonderful little album.

I quite like Sleepwalk by Santo and Johnny and the revamped version by Brian Setzer.

Harlem Nocturn...Johnny Otis Revue

Pet Sounds...Beach Boys [brian really]


Just went back and checked everyone's contributions...Marc...Apricot Brandy??? WHERE do I find THAT. I've looked for years. No Rhino cds out and it's not on any compilation I've ever seen???

* Like a couple others noted, Paul Mauriat's "Love Is Blue" is one of those vintage pieces that takes you back.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_b6xaVvgeM&feature=related

* Ditto for Elton's "Funeral for a Friend" --- a classic.

* I love the 2nd half of Derek & the Dominos' "Layla." Occasionally, radio stations hacked it off -- big mistake!

* My mom always listened to (still does, actually) Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, so I got to like a lot of their pop hits.

* Paul McCartney's "Rockestra Theme" has a nice, driving melody and lots of great players (Gary Brooker, John Bonham, and Pete Townsend.... Plus, Keith Moon would have played on it, but died shortly before the session).
