CD Review – Enoch Light / Beatles Classics & Serendipity
Vocalion CDLK4646 [72:22]

This is the second album in Vocalion's new release of Easy Listening music. Enoch Light (1907-78) was an American conductor, arranger and entrepreneur. He started the Command label and, always interested in the technical side, he struck it rich with the advent of stereo. He went on to be one the first to record on 35mm movie film instead of tape, an advance at the time.

He came out of retirement in the 1980's to work with Frank Sinatra.
