Album Notes

Anderson conducts 47 of his own compositions on this recording. The performances were originally released on Decca LPs.

Collection is a generous, double-disc set that features 47 of Leroy Anderson's finest moments, including such milestones as "Blue Tango," "Sleigh Ride," and "Syncopated Clock." As a matter of fact, the compilation comes close to being definitive, since it effectively traces Anderson's musical development, and features his best (and best-known) tunes. The result is both an effective introduction and a fascinating retrospective of a gifted easy listening/classical-pop composer. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
