The Carpetbaggers Theme 2Theme Music From The Carpetbaggers
The Wyncote Orchestra And Chorus
Wyncote W-9015 (stereo)
What could I expect from an album released on a budget label like Wyncote, sporting a really boring cover (and I mean awful boring) and featuring a studio group called The Wyncote Orchestra?
Buying this album, I thought, would be another $1 down the vinyl rat hole. But actually... this is a pretty cool album! There are a number of light pop tunes on the album in addition to the more dramatic example posted above, but all but one of those songs (there is a dull track that finishes up the LP on the B side) are well done and interesting. Each song is unusually extended so there are only six tracks on the LP.
Don't judge a book by the cover.
