Mantovani Magic

Despite the relatively early stereo recording techniques (this is from 1970!) the legendary Mantovani and his Orchestra made a delightfully light but memorable version of just about anything they touched.

I certainly have never forgotten this (it 'earworms' me from time to time) since the day I bought the old vinyl LP ('album' in modern parlance) from a shop in Hartfield Road, Wimbledon in 1967.

This video simply presents an image of the great man – and that is all it needs...
