Eugene Ormandy/The Philadelphia Orchestra – The Fantastic Philadelphians, Volume 2


This release may come as a surprise to long time followers of Captain Beyond. More similar to this are upcoming if all goes well. What surprised the Captain was that the songs contained on this reel sounded very familiar to someone who is not acquainted with this form of music. Have heard these songs somewhere before but in a long forgotten context.

Eugene Ormandy who conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra for 44 years truly had an amazing career. He left us with a vast recorded catalog. Under his baton, the Philadelphia had three gold records and won two Grammy awards. His work was captured spanning from early acoustic recordings all the way through to the modern age of digital recording. Enjoy   CB
