MG-20336: The Hits That Made Ralph Marterie And His Orchestra Famous

[Front Cover] Label Type : black Mercury type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG-20336A-1    MS1    M3
SIDE-B MG-20336B-1    MS1    M1



Comments

with Mercury inner sleeve, but it may not be the one that originally came with album (the matrix number says it's first press, while the inner sleeve's type is for releases circa 1960).

Inside The Groove

The best album of a great dance band leader and a trumpeter.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This album contains full of hit tunes cut by Ralph Marterie on Mercury. Famous hit singles and a powerful dance tunes like “Caravan” and “Castle Rock” swings so hard. Anyway, this compilation LP (aka best album) is an instant collection of his great hit singles.

That's the Ralph Marterie's way. Great.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
