Enoch Light did a whole series of movie theme albums for Command / Project 3 Records. Each one had a few rare themes on it.

I picked up that Elaine Paige CD in a charity shop recently. I must give it another listen as I wasn't enamoured with it first time.

Smacking my forehead that I didn't think of Mathis. He did a whole album, with Mancini, yet.

That's a great album too David. Full of lovely Mancini arrangements of standards and Mathis in good form as well. Gets regular listens from mesmile

Man, when I started this thread a couple of years ago, I had no idea what a treasure trove would be assembled here, and not just by DavidinB.

I haven't been in the mood for cover songs lately, but I have been enjoying some Geoff Love, Stanley Black, and the Ron Goodwin fantasy and scifi albums lately, as well as the Alex North covers albums from the 50's (though haven't ordered the latest Kritzerland yet).

But this is whetting my appetite again. Still preferring the vocalists over the instrumentals, except for Mancini and Bolling. Enjoying hearing the movie songs covered by singers rather than put through the easy-listening machine. Just seem to have more character, again, except Mancini and Bolling - but then I love both of them pretty much no matter what they do.

And I've been avoiding the TV stuff, so there's more to be had.

This 1968 album from Louis Armstrong is one I never expected to see/hear.

This show was supposed to have a cd, but I can't find it. If it comes out, it qualifies:

Although this is not a recording of that Jackie Evancho PBS concert, this 2012 CD contains many of the songs she sang on that show. Included on the CD are the whimsical ("Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory), Disney songs ("Can You Feel the Love Tonight" from The Lion King and "I See the Light" from Tangled), anthems ("My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic, featuring Joshua Bell, violin) and romantic standards ("Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific). Other collaborations on the album are "The Summer Knows" from Summer of 42, featuring Chris Botti, trumpet, and "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge, featuring The Canadian Tenors. The album ends with "When I Fall In Love."

Sammy Davis Jr. released this LP in 1974 in conjunction with MGM's film THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT. It has his cover versions of great songs from MGM musicals.

This LP was only released in mono, so it's probably from the mid-1950s.
