I’ve always been bit partial to a bit of Easy Listening/Library music, but have never delved too deeply into it as there are just not enough hours in the day for all of music I discover…and am waiting to discover! The musical tangents I find myself embarking on are one of my favourite things in the world! I never know where I’m going to end up!! The possibilities drawn out from my searches are seemingly limitless and that gives me thrills beyond words!!
Today’s piece of music is a glorious track from 1967. Created by Peter Reno, who I initially assumed was just one man, this song was composed by music partners Peter Taylor (composer) and his business associate, Cliff Twemlow. Active throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, their repertoire is extensive and includes music used on TV shows such as Queenie’s Castle and Crown Court (TV series) and several films including Dawn of the Dead!
The Lost World appears on Peter Reno’s Polaris LP, which was issued on the Music De Wolfe label in 1967. If you are into these sounds, this label is worth checking out as it has been recognised as the originator of Library music!! Dramatic and striking, today’s song opens with an epic introduction, which soon gives way to a smooth and luxurious string-led melody, the contrast is a treat to the senses and the drumming is pretty cool too – I could imagine sampling this!! It’s a gorgeous discovery that I am so happy to be sharing……as is always the case!!! I hope you like!
