It’s always fun planning future holidays, and the anticipation can be an important element in the experience. With this in mind, Guild offers a timely collection which may help to stimulate interest in some far away glamorous destinations, and the means of reaching them. All one needs is the sense of adventure, and the money to pay for it all! From Wally Stott’s impression of jet travel, to a final Mediterranean destination in Monte Carlo, the musical journey stops off in Italy, Spain, France, the United States, the Caribbean and the Far East. Familiar light music conductors such as Robert Farnon, Roger Roger, Dolf van der Linden and Philip Green are joined by Hal Evans in an impressive piece of Australian light music. As usual, there are plenty of contrasts, and armchair travellers will enjoy all the pleasures of visiting exotic places, without the hassle of checking-in at airports.
