33 Original Recordings On 180g Double LP!

If you'd like to be introduced to Mantovani, this is a great album to start with and one of the best from his vast repertoire. From the 1930s to the 1960s he sold 60 million records and in 1959 became the first artist to have six albums in the American Top 30 at the same time. In 1954 Mantovani recorded his greatest hit, "Cara Mia", wherein he employed a female choir. A string of big sellers included on Golden Treasures followed. Mantovani's first hit in America was in 1951 when he recorded the 1920s ballad "Charmaine" and developed it into a rich and mellifluous orchestral score that instantly became his signature tune.

"Conductor, composer, violinist, and pianist Mantovani was one of the most popular and prolific easy listening artists of all time. His trademark 'cascading strings' (or 'tumbling strings') effect gave him an instantly recognizable sound, and his heavy reliance on the string section in general helped map out the blueprint for much of the light orchestral music that followed in his wake. His repertoire did feature original compositions, but was built chiefly on lush adaptations of familiar melodies: TV and movie themes, show tunes, pop hits (chiefly of the MOR variety), classical material, and the like. Starting his career in the '20s, Mantovani was very much a product of the recording age: he focused almost entirely on recording, instead of live performance; he was one of the first artists to utilize the LP as a primary medium for his releases (as opposed to singles); he was one of the first popular artists to use stereo recording technology, and likely the first to sell over a million records in the stereo format. Fascinated by the studio recording process, he experimented restlessly with miking methods and other technical nuances over the course of an astoundingly large discography -- more than 50 albums from the early '50s until his death in 1980 (not counting his numerous 78 rpm records, dating back to the late '20s)." - AllMusic
