Listened to this while entering it into Discogs. Man, I feel like I'm back in high school and that was a LONG time ago! What a great compilation, particularly with The Kinks and Donovan. Sounds Orchestral's "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" might seem a... See full review

To the best of my knowledge, Topper only recorded this one album, a must-hear for mellotron fanatics. According to info. on the internet reportedly from Jimmy Hodges III, the album was recorded at least in part at Jim Hodges' club - probably the... See full review

This album, recorded two years after they first appeared on The Andy Williams Show, showcases the boys' expanding musical talents. Two songs were arranged by Terry Melcher, Doris Day's son.

You gotta love the cover shot of the Osmond Brothers... See full review

Gets my vote for hardest to read credits. They run around a fisheye lens shot of the band, so you gotta spin the album round and round to figure out who did what!

My copy of this disk, while not marked as a promo, came to me through a station in Iowa where I routinely did some production. The disk was being used to promote 3M's digital recording process. The liner goes into some detail about the process and... See full review

To the best of my knowledge, Loadstone only put out this one album, though they apparently play on an Andy Williams record. Lodestone was a Las Vegas band that played at the Pussycat A Go Go, a club Williams frequented. Williams signed them to his... See full review

Since acquiring this record, I have had e-mail correspondence with Larry Miller of Audio House. Larry tells me that Audio House recorded several Severinsen concerts and made their masters in-house. While he didn't give me an exact pressing quantity,... See full review

This promo stumps me. I can find no record (pardon the pun) that the songs on this promo were ever released. Is it possible King put out the promo to try and get air play and planned only to ramp up production if one of the tracks caught on??

I have this album. The title listed is incorrect. It is Spaces, not Space. corrected it on 1/29/2011
