“Spring into Action!” – The Sound of the ‘Sixties, Liberty Record sales corporation, 1959/1960.
A nice collection, but very different from what I associated with Liberty as a kid. Something like my parents copy of Teensville is what I was expecting.
This album has Julie London, musical comedian Spike Jones, guitarist Al Viola, bongo wizard Jack Costanzo, Felix Slatkin’s Fantastic Brass, Gene McDaniels, and Harry Sukman doing some classical Liszt. We sometimes forget that this music was on the radio and was a big part of the sixties. Not everyone was a hippie, or even into rock n roll exclusively.
“To the Record Librarian…” Hey! That’s me! This was a give-away to record stations to entice them to purchase the albums.
