It was very well produced by a young Tom Mowrey (then an associate of matrixed quad inventor Peter Scheiber and later a Grammy-winning producer of Operas) and mastered hot by DGG's Guenter Herrmanns and Volker Martin.

    Mowrey revitalized Fiedler's and The Pops discography when they left RCA and moved to Polydor (in 1969): shedding the beaten-to-death, 1950s Leroy Anderson repertoire which had gotten quaint in the midst of all the Sixties' creative revolution.
    Hi Martin

    I noticed you are using a Dokorder. I had a Dokorder that had two sets of reels for dubbing by threading both original and blank tape together in way back high school days. It was a fine machine other than the reel flange was made of plastic and one fast winding operations and coming to a sudden stop caused the plastic flanges to snap off making the machine unusable. Back then I had no idea the problem could have been fixed with new parts. I had the biggest heartbreak.

      First Time! The Count Meets The Duke. Duke Ellington and Count Basie Orchestras. Never ceases to blow me away (and I'm more of a rock, blues, roots guy)!
