101 Strings - Plays Hit Songs for Girls (1967)


101 Strings was another of my mom's favorites, but this is not one of her albums. I bought this one from my favorite place - the bargain bin at HPB. And, once again, it was the cover that caught my eye. For some reason, the girls at either end remind me of Sharon Tate and Barbara Parkins in "Valley of the Dolls" (one of my favorite movies). Anyway, I don't think that there's anyone who hasn't heard of 101 Strings. The easy-listening orchestra put out tons of albums and covered just about everything you can think of. Well, this is a pleasing album with some familiar tunes. Go get it now!

I love your blog, Esther. Great selections of music, but what I like most are your write-ups. They're personal, enthusiastic, and even informative.

Hope your guitar playing's going well and you're still obsessing over...well, something!

cheers

I love 101 Strings. All their albums are full of great melodies. The only ones I don't like are the ones with vocals. I get them for the strings not the cords.

Keep up the good work.
