A masterpiece just as good 40 years later,
This review is from: So Much In Love! (Audio CD)
I loved this music when I was young and I still think Conniff and his singers did a fabulous job on this album. Romantic, upbeat, creative, gorgeous sound ... this just has everything. It starts off with the combo of Walkin' in the Rain, a great Johnny Ray song, coupled with Autumn Leaves. Really nice use of common tempo.
Perhaps my favorite track is the pairing of Dancing in the Dark and Dancing on the Ceiling. I must sound like a broken record in my praise of this music, but this one is enchanting.
This album was made in the early days of stereo recording when engineers took pains to separate the "right" content from the "left" content ... and that shows up nicely on some of these Conniff Singers early recording ... at least if you listen carefully.
The only disappointing thing about this is that Conniff is gone now so he's not making more like this.

Totally agree this album like the rest of Ray Conniffs is awesome.I play it when i'm in the right mood for relaxing;or if i'm not in the mood it soon puts me in same.i love all his music; but some tracks more than others.His sound is rich;full and very easy to listen too.Like others i started listening to Ray Conniff when i was around 16 or 17 years of age.have never lost sight of his great sound;and now at 57 years of age still love his music all now on CD.I often find it hard to beleive that some of the tracks i listen to are almost 50 years old! Long live Ray Conniff!
