Background Moods


"And so we come to it, the great work of our age..." Gandalf - The Return Of The King.

Yep this is it, the big one. Ten, count 'em 10 LP's of lounge faves courtesy of the folks at Reader's Digest, in bandwidth-friendly mono.

Welcome to the world of 'Pleasure Programming'. I'll let the booklet tell you more...


Each of the 20 sides of this collection is programmed to evoke a particular mood. Designed to make use of the ultra-modern auto-disk changing record player, our Pleasure Programmers could put 5, 6, 7 or more records on their player at once, and then dine away the evening without having the tedium of that perfect intimate moment being spoiled by the music finishing prematurely. Here are the first two programs from the booklet.

Yes, all 10 disks are coming your way. The first two disks/four programs are in the first download, along with scans of the box-set cover and the corresponding sections of the booklet. Here's the tracklist for the first two LPs.
