Paul Mauriat - Penelope & Holidays (2017)
Contemporary, Instrumental, Easy Listening | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Covers | 01:10:44 | 209 MB
Two early 70s gems from French easy maestro Paul Mauriat – both from a time when he was at the height of his powers! Penelope has a sexy lady on the front cover, and a sound that definitely matches that mood too – although Mauriat also manages to bring up some funky strings at a few points too – maybe giving the music more of a special sort of soundtrack mix than some of his earlier records! The sound is bright, but never too polished – and titles include "Penelope", "Melancholy Man", "La Bikina", "Et Mourir De Plaisir", "Reviens Je T'Aime", and "Etude In The Form Of Rhythm & Blues". Holidays is a sweet set that serves up easy instrumental versions of European and American pop hits from the late 60s and early 70s – all done with that spacious blend of strings, piano, and electric bottom bass that always made Paul Mauriat one of the sexier, slinkier easy listening artists of his time! Titles include "Jesus Cristo", "Holidays", "La Chanson Pour Anna", "Mother Of Mine", "Here's To You", "Speak Softly Love", and "Apres Toi".
