Around the World for $2

The Cinema Sound Stage Orchestra — Around the World in 80 Days (1956)
When I was a kid, I watched a lot of 50s movies. I can't really remember most of them, however they all had absolutley beautiful scores filled with strings.

"Sky Symphony" from Around the World in 80 Days is simply "delightful". Never has an adjective described something so perfectly! Again, I found this in an Op-shop for $2!

I see red!

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra conducted by William Steinberg — Johann Strauss Jr. (195?)
After a slight hiatus, I'm back posting awesome LP covers! Where have I been? Nowhere, I was just a little lazy... Though, you may have noticed the fancy new banner. The sites still under construction, but it looks slightly better now.

Anyway, Today we have a little Strauss Jr. with an amazing illustration. That guy kinda reminds me of Rhett Butler for some reason. Nothing beats 50s script fonts either!
