Paul Weston / Music For Easy Listening
In 1944, as musical director for the newly formed Capitol Records company, Paul Weston decided to record an album with strings added to the customary dance band instrumentation, and what was to be called "Mood Music" was born.
The album, MUSIC FOR DREAMING, was an immediate success, and was followed by three others - MUSIC FOR MEMORIES, MUSIC FOR ROMANCING, and MUSIC FOR THE FIRESIDE. In 1950 a Coronet magazine article dubbed Weston as: "Master of Mood Music".
After seven years at Columbia Records, during which time he recorded twelve instrumental albums - including double albums of the music of Jerome Kern and Sigmund Romberg, Weston returned to Capitol and in 1958, re-recorded his original Capitol albums in stereo.
Fourteen of these tracks are presented in this CD album.

YOU GO TO MY HEAD

SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN
I'LL BE SEEING YOU
WHERE OR WHEN
I COVER THE WATERFRONT
WHEN APRIL COMES AGAIN
