This is the origional Mantovani Orchestra and from the opening strings of 'Charmaine', you'll be entranced. After he died, Stanley Black took over his Orchestra but didn't meet the success of the origional orchestra. A must have for Mantovani fans.

The fact that this recording is still one of the bestsellers of the Mantovani discography some THIRTY-FOUR YEARS AFTER ITS INITIAL RELEASE is testimony to the endurance of the maestro's music and the golden classics heard on this CD. All of the hallmarks of the authentic Mantovani sound are found on these selections. Americans who may find this recording amidst all the record albums stored in family attics may see one difference on this CD: the song Games That Lovers Play which appeared on the American release was replaced by True Love on this British version. Both are among Monty's golden hits so no one is being shortchanged because the CD sound only enhances the beauty of every selection Mantovani creatively scored. Those already enamored to the luxurious sound of Mantovani will "truly love" this CD. Those unfamiliar with Mantovani's orchestrations who have not yet discovered that they possess the ear for "rubato" will become hooked on these selections, the first dozen of many, many more marvelous string arrangements on Mantovani CDs still enthralling listeners some 50 years after Mantovani's signature piece, Charmaine, hit the airwaves. Long live Monty's music!

If you have only one CD of Montovani to buy, this is the one to get. Beware once you do, you may become a huge fan like the rest of us and this will be one of many.

Mantovani's Golden Hits has been in my life for many years. I first purchased this particular Sound track for my mother as a Christmas present in the 1960's as a 33 rpm record. She so loved the composer and many of the musical selections. She played this often and I grew up appreciating the gorgeous orchestra music when the rage was rock and roll. My mother died many years ago but I kept her record. I did listen to it as I was raising my children. My son is now getting married and wanted a beautiful waltz to dance with his bride at the reception. He requested my help in finding "Moon River" without the lyrics and in perfect waltz tempo. I immediately pulled out my 33 rpm and played it for him. I then ordered the cd for him to play at his wedding reception. All the selections on this CD are so beautifully arranged and timeless.

My parents use to listen to Mantovani alot when I was younger. I bought this to relax in the car and at home as well as relive my past. The strings of Mantovani sing through recognizable songs from my past ans are very relaxing. If you want to relax and dream through soaring string sections then this is the record for you.

Golden Hits is a very special recording. My wife and I heard a broadcast of Mantovani playing More, one of our favorite songs. We both thought it was the best rendition we had ever heard. His scoring replayed the theme using different instruments as lead. The different combination of instruments enhanced the beauty of the song. Unfortunately, we could not find a copy until I stumbled upon this CD on Amazon.

This CD, re-mastered in 1996, is quality sound. It is as clear as being in the concert hall with the orchestra. Mantovani scores popular songs to sound like classical orchestration. In my opinion, his use of strings provides a full,
robust sound.

I highly recommend this CD, it is much better than I expected, and certainly better than the broadcast that led me to this recording.

Great music does not age, and like fine wine can only get better with time; Mantovani's music is a great example.

This album is a collection of fabulous music, and contains the best version of "Summer Time in Venice" I have ever heard.

I'm a very rich woman to have this CD and this kind of music in my collection, but in a world seemingly devoid of taste, I don't think many will agree with me.

I like Mantovani and his soothing music. Sure beats the loud noise of today. Some songs I didn't care for, but over all it was great listening. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys good music from the good old days.
