Light Orchestras were much in demand when stereo LPs started appearing in 1957 and 1958. Although the technology had been largely perfected in 1933 by Alan Blumlein at EMI (an early example featuring the Ray Noble Orchestra was featured on the Guild CD "In Town Tonight – The 1930s Volume 2" - GLCD 5116), two decades were to pass before record companies felt the time was right to persuade the public to buy the necessary equipment. Mantovani's first stereo album sold over one million copies, and other famous conductors such as George Melachrino, Nelson Riddle, Robert Farnon, Morton Gould, Frank Cordell, David Carroll, Richard Hayman, Norrie Paramor and Les Baxter (all featured on this CD) were quick to embrace the opportunities offered by the latest technical advances in high-fidelity sound.
