La Mer - John Sands
So called Popular Music is the rich stuff of memory; a flowing river from deep in the past, carrying the sensations of another time, another place and another self, and to listen is to be transported . . . so it will be with you too, I suspect, as you listen to the music of this album.
Most of songs in this collection were played everywhere, for everyone, over these past years. You have heard them and will recall them from dances, jukeboxes, movies, and from the radio in a parked car on a moonlit night.
We may recall too, enjoyable evenings with friends, spinning some 45’s and some LP’s on our record players, playing the songs you could not help but hum and whistle and snap your fingers to. In the soothing style that has become his hallmark, John Sands' colourful orchestrations and tranquil arrangements bring a warm eloquence to these pop classics. Sit back and enjoy, and let your own reminiscences reincarnate through the mists of time.
