5.0 out of 5 stars Music from Heaven November 25, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I recently came upon this album while browsing. I actually heard my mother playing "In London In Love" in the late 50s as a child, and when I saw the picture of the album jacket on Amazon, I had to order it. Floods of memories came back to me. If there is more beautiful violin orchestra music, I have yet to hear it. The other album of the two-album set, "Autumn in New York", is also very nice, but "London" is on a plateau by itself. I would like to know whose beautiful voice slips in and out of the songs on each track, and whatever happened to Norrie Paramor.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Paramor PLEASE June 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
As all the other reviewers have said, these albums are pure listening pleasure. The arrangements are quite original and like no one else's. The use of the solo soprano gives a new take on songs we thought we knew inside out and backwards. Strongly recommended.
Now, as many of the other reviewers have said, could we please have some more Paramor reissues. My particular favourite is "The Zodiac Suite", a collection of beautifully varied original compositions - one for each sign of the zodiac - which definitely deserves a return to the catalogue. This treasure appeared in the UK on Columbia 33SX 1055 and is tantalisingly advertised as Capitol T 10073 in the reproduction of the original back cover of "Autumn".
To go back to the CD we do have, if in doubt, buy with confidence; you are in for a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Treasure February 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Just days before Robert Kennedy was assasinated in 1968, I was getting ready for bed about 2AM and heard a remarkable recording of "Where Are You." I sat down in the floor of my living room and called Dallas radio station, KRLD, and their "Music 'Til Dawn" program to ask "Who IS that?" The DJ spoke to me at length about the music of the 1940's British Conductor-Arranger Norrie Paramor, and the "floating voice" of Patricia Clark who was identified on the album "Warm & Willing." I became a huge Norrie Paramor fan and bought most of his albums. I was thrilled to be able to puchase two of my Paramor albums on one CD from Amazon recently, and shall hope to see "Warm & Willing" released very soon. Paramor is a must for anyone who considers him or herself a hopeless romantic.

I used to listen to this album endlessly at my Grandmother's on her Magnavox Hi-Fi in the early 60's...I now have her copy, and have searched for years for Paramor on cd...how delighted I was to find this one...hopefully, there will be more...In London, In Love and Moods were my favorites...

5.0 out of 5 stars Norrie Paramor-In London In Love January 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I loved this when it was first released as L.P.'s years ago. Norrie was one of the great arrangers and conductors. One thing that added to and still adds to the enjoyment of this CD is the use of the beautiful voice of Patricia Clark who floats into ones consciousness, usually singing the title phrase of the piece. She may not be heard again, or she may sing a little closing phrase. In some selections she doesn't sing words at all, but Norrie uses her voice like a musical instrument in his arrangements.
I hope the we will be lucky enough to have more of his old LP's restored to CD with the perfect technique we hear here. This is not "elevator music" but a group of wonderful songs from the best era of popular music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Strings with Haunting, Unnamed Singer December 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The album, "In London, In Love," is one of my all-time favorite albums. A big bonus is the second album, "Autumn," included on the single disc CD. I looked for a long time to find a CD version of these two albums, long after my vinyl LP had worn out. The standards are familiar, and the instrumental music is easy to listen to. But the voice of the unnamed girl singer is what makes the record special. If you look very closely at the album cover liner notes, you can find the name of the singer, but it is not easy. Part of the fun of this album is the mystery singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for New York Impressions January 10, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In my quest to find Norrie Paramor's New York Impressions CD I noticed London In Love had the "New York" songs listed. I was thrilled. Needless to say I ordered the CD and love the music, just as I did many years ago listening to my sister's LP of Norrie Paramor - New York Impressions. Thanks for listing all the songs on the CD.

I'm a bit of a lush when it comes to easy listening music. The music has to pretty much put me in a "Calgon take me away" type of state and this CD kind of puts me there.
