Performer Notes
  • Typical of the many mod brass albums of the day, Sound of the Times features many of the same people, tunes, ideas, sounds, and arrangements as other albums. "I'm Coming Home Cindy" is a great one arranged by Dick Behrke of King Richard's Fluegel Knights fame. "A Sign of the Times" is one of several Bobby Scott arrangements generally leaning more toward the subtler Mancini sound than "brass impact." But "Batman Theme" is all bombast, and at under a minute and a half (still too long for this one, some might say) it should be. With a huge, thunderous beat and brass spreading everywhere like batwings, this creative arrangement flies right past the discotheque and "heavy" listening. "Why Not?" ends the other side with some jangly, sitar-esque guitar, as if someone felt it important to acknowledge Gabor Szabo or at least psychedelia. The Elgart's final "au go-go" effort tries new things and has its moments. ~ Tony Wilds
