Review

Review Text As space age bachelor pad music goes, these were among the most widely heard examples of the genre. Over half of these 15 cuts, in fact, were hit singles, including such smashes as "Quiet Village" (Martin Denny), "So Rare" (Jimmy Dorsey), "Moritat" (Dick Hyman, and later to be changed into "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin), "Yellow Bird" (Arthur Lyman), "Theme from Route 66" (Nelson Riddle), and "Moonglow and Love Theme from Picnic" (Morris Stoloff). This means that experts might sniff and deride this collection as too "mainstream." Popular lounge music, however, was no less interesting than collectible lounge music, and perhaps more so. Which means that this is a good sampler of the style that was a subordinate but notable part of American popular music in the late 1950s and early 1960s, especially if you weren't around when these hits were played on AM radio. ~ Richie Unterberger
