Music for Sunday Date, Vol. 25

Hello, my firends!

Summer is coming, so lots of things to do on the open air instead of sitting in the front of monitor ;) However, I found the time to make a brand new compilation for sunday date. These tunes are harmonising with the sun and summer fun.

Ozzie Warlock is actually Tony Osborne, British composer and arrenger. In the 1950s he was working for the major companies of the day, and he formed his own band, the Brass Hats, for weekly appearances on the BBC TV teenage show, Six-Five Special.

When that was superseded by "Juke Box Jury" show in 1959, Osborne wrote and recorded the theme song, "Juke Box Fury", under the name of Ozzie Warlock and The Wizards. Yeah, that's the programm where Sex Pistols have appeared in the 1970s ;)

Piero Piccioni, established composer and band leader, wrote "The Rendezvouz" for the "The 10th Victim" movie, based on the novel by my fav sci-fi writer Robert Sheckley.

Jonas Mašanauskas recorded this song about young city Elektrenai in the old Lithuania. Scored by Lithuanian Radio and TV orchestra and chorus.

The last track is an instrumental number "Sochi". It was written by Kirill Molchanov for a panoramic movie about USSR "Shiroka Strana Moya". Sochi was and still is one of the most favorite Russian resort cities.

There are more nice tunes here. Have a nice weekend!
