Wayne King - Wayne King in Hi-Fi (196?) MP3/Flac


If you like music with lots of lush string arrangements, then you'll like this album. I mostly bought this record for the album cover, but I also like all the songs. And I have fond memories of dancing to Wayne King songs at the practice parties of the dance studio where I took ballroom dancing for several years. All the songs on this album are well known and often-requested standards of the time, but I have to admit I had to chuckle when I heard "Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life" because I associate that song with the movie "Young Frankenstein"! Well, the liner notes do refer to these songs as mood music, after all. (I couldn't find a release year for this album, but I'm guessing 1960s.)
And now, get set for a wonderful treat in high fidelity... as Wayne King and his orchestra show you how to put the "mood" in mood music.
