Notes & Reviews:
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the world's premier classical orchestras, has for many years run a parallel career as purveyors of fantastic pseudo classical arrangements of popular music. Their Hooked on Classics topped the charts world-wide and the RPO Queen Album is still a big seller some 20 years after its first release proving that there is a market for this the ultimate MOR music. This album sees the RPO performing some their interpretations of great popular melodies including such classics as Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamonds' 'You Don't Bring Me Flowers'. Billy Preston and Syreeta's 'With You I'm Born Again', 'Lara's Theme' from 'Dr Zhivago' and 'I Don't Know How To Love Him' from 'Jesus Christ Superstar' the ultimate 'Chill Out' album.
