This fine twofer CD has all the songs from two of Ray Conniff's outstanding record albums entitled "Turn Around Look at Me" and "I Love How You Love Me." That Ray Conniff chorus never sounded better and it's amazing how well Ray, the singers and those musicians all successfully handle these renditions of classic pop vocal tunes! The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork incorporates the original record album artwork.

Despite the internal politics and tensions of the period, the band taps into a ferocious energy that never stops burning.
