A fun pop-harp album. David Snell is one of those names I've been looking out for carefully, because I love the sound of the harp, and the era in which he recorded, along with his library music connections, seem promising. I once had an LP by him from the mid to late 60s that sounded great.

This later LP has some beautiful Bacharach arrangements and pop hits of the late 60s on one side, and pop arrangements of classical stuff on the other. The first side is better. I’m all for pop-classical, but wouldn’t have chosen pieces like ‘eine kleine nachmusik’ and ‘fur elise’. Still, it's all quite tastefully done. My LP is Quad; shame I don't have the system to check that out!
