101 Strings - Million Sellers From The Movies (1972)


Here's another 50-cent gem I picked up out of the HPB bargain bin - and it was still sealed! I must admit that it was the cover that caught my eye. Nice, er, uh...scarf - on her head. Yeah, yeah. That's it. The music itself is familiar - themes from movies from the early 1970s (although I've only heard about half of these myself), and it's played "with the Big Sound of the magnificent '101' Strings orchestra". I was a little surprised that 101 Strings could rock a little on "Superstar". The next time I watch "Jesus Christ Superstar", I'm sure that the 101 Strings version of the song will be the one that sticks in my head. Really, I do like 101 Strings. I just wish I had more of their albums! Anyone out there want to share some?

good evening, stax o' wax. :)

You asked for more 101 strings? Here's a link for a site with 18 albums. They have a huge variety of easy listening and MOR. There's Bert, Percy, a lot of Henry Mancini-the list just goes on and on. When you copy the download link, be sure and add the h to your browser. Also-you might want to make this a separate FYI post for your readers because not everyone reads the comments.
