Ron Goodwin - Gypsy Fire

Lurking behind this cheesy cover is a real light classics gem. Produced by George Martin, the tracks on this album show a quality of arrangement and orchestration that owes much to British composers such as Vaughn-Williams and Elgar. This is also one of the best-preserved records I have ever purchased, and you will hear the difference - the violins in particular have a clean, crisp presence that adds to the overall air of orchestral respectability.

p.s. A big thanks to everyone for all the kind comments...
