Original LP liner notes:
Although this album primarily features The Singers singing the words, there are two songs which feature the orchestra and chorus instrumentally.
Ray plays trombone on one of these, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and he also features "Skeets" Herfurt on the amplified flute, as well as some exciting timpani work by Bernie Mattinson (stereo left), and Wally Snow (stereo right).
The album was recorded in Hollywood on 8-track machines with no overdubbing.
The instrumentation was: 13 men singers, 12 girl singers, 3 trombones, 3 trumpets, 6 guitars, 2 pianos (organ double), 2 percussionists, string bass, electric Fender bass guitar, rhythm drums, amplified flute (doubling amplified clarinet) and solo trombone by Ray.
Other recent Ray Conniff albums include: "Somewhere My Love," "This Is My Song," "The Hawaiian Album," "It Must Be Him" and "Honey."
