Editorial Reviews

Leader of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and Frank Sinatra's conductor of choice during the classic Capitol years, Felix Slatkin is an orchestral giant on a par with Les Baxter, Ray Conniff and Percy Faith, but his extensive catalog remains virtually unavailable on CD. So, "in concert" with the folks who run his website, we have cherry-picked one of his finest records, 1962's 'Hoedown' on the Liberty label, and included not just the original album but also the *unreleased acoustic demos* featuring old-time fiddler Gordon Terry that Slatkin listened to when fashioning his orchestrations for these timeless mountain tunes. So, whether you like your country orchestrated or old-fashioned, you'll be dosie-do-in' till the cows come home with this one. A Collectors' Choice Music Exclusive with original art and new notes!

Remember the vinyl version of this ablum from the 1960's. Well sort of: I knew it was Felix & recently noticed it on the back of another Slatkin album. So hopped onto Amazon & there it was. An absolute blast, for a somewhat pop label the Liberty Boys did a great job with Felix's material. Like having a time machine in my6 CD player. Spreadjoy, and you sure did. Hank

I did not expect the additional 12 non-Felix cuts to be on the CD -- they were not nearly as beautifully orchestrated as the first 12 Felix Slatkin arrangements, so I have to eject and reinsert CD when playing in car to quickly return to the original music I prefer hearing. So, other than those unwanted extra cuts, the original 12 FS compositions are as Fabulous as I so fondly remember. thx.

Got the product which arrived in excellent condition. I fell in love with several of these tracks at other times and in different formats and was overjoyed to find them all in one place on one CD. The CD sounds wonderful.

Got my first stereo in the early 60s. I heard this music in stereo and learned to love and appreciate all music from this then vinyl album. I never got tired of it. Brings back fond memories and keeps me feeling young.
