Enoch Light and the Brass Menagerie

Raw power, savage beauty, and the ruthless new sound of brass.

"Not since Enoch Light's Persuasive Percussion revolutionized the entire concept of sound recording has an instrumental album created such a furore (sic) as Enoch Light's Brass Menagerie". So hails the liner notes on this 1969 collection of popular songs (including three from the musical Hair) done up with every variety of brass instrument available. Inside the fold-out jacket we get Light's usual paragraph-long treatment of each tune along with an essay that virtually credits Light with every musical innovation since the 19th century. That said, the tunes are pretty good -- dig yourself up a copy and give 'em a listen.

Good Morning Starshine (Real Audio) Tubas and flutes shine in this dramatic interpretation of the "Hair" classic.
Stars and Stripes '69 (Real Audio) Kind of like a swinging 60's version of the John Phillip Sousa march. Cool.

I have in my possession, Twenty One Trombones by Enoch Light. This in my opinion was the greatest album I have ever owned. It is getting a little scratched, and I wondered if this was ever reproduced on CD's!!. If so, I would love to purchase this. Please let me know. Thanks (05-29-1997)
