Monday records

Till - Roger Williams: pretty piano, some pop, some classical

In a Sentimental Mood - The Longines Symphonette Society: so I finally broke down and google this label, because I keep getting annoyed that there's no credits on these things. so a couple interesting links. First, Wikipedia and second a brief rambling from someone involved in the Longines Symphonette.

Melodies for Meditation - The Longines Symphonette Society: from the cover, "There is a certain kind of melody that has the power to soothe the spirit, settle nerves, and cancel out external distractions...freeing the mind for peaceful reflection." blah, blah, blah, it goes on... and most of these tunes would fall in that category, Meditation from Thais, Beautiful Dreamer, Andante Cantabile (Tchaikovsky). I'm just curious about the people that find Battle Hymn of the Republic conducive to meditation.

Golden Award Songs - Crazy Otto: I think the crazy bit comes from the badly in need of a tuning piano. (yeah, yeah, it's a honky-tonk thing) More about "Crazy Otto" at .
