Midnight Blue - John Sands
From time to time I get asked what my favourite kind of music is. I have often realized that a piece of music which has instant appeal to my own taste, usually has it’s roots in one of the old classical compositions - and so it is with the title track on this album.
Beethoven’s Pathetique was the inspiration for MIDNIGHT BLUE, a contemporary arrangement that was recorded by Louise Tucker, a British band, in the early 70's. This song commanded a lengthy reign of popularity on the hit parade list.
Most of the songs in this collection have been on somebody’s hit parade some time or another. However, a few of these titles will be unfamiliar. Over the years, a number of compositions have come along bearing the title 'Ave Maria - Ave Maria no morrow' is one of the lesser known pieces - none -the-less, it’s very pretty.
