Playing tracks by
Chet Atkins, Dick Rosmini, Jennifer Warnes, James Last & The American Patrol, Horst Jankowski and more.
We’ve got sassy brass, we’ve got lush strings, we’ve got great guitar picking, we’ve got vocals and harmonies. Naturally Stoned starts with a Chet Atkins rendition of a Paul Simon tune from 1968; then a track from the 1969 Dick Rosmini album, A Genuine Rosmini; Jennifer Warnes from her 1968 album, I Can Remember Everything; James Last & The American Patrol from their very brassy 1966 album, Trumpet A-Go-Go; the distinctive piano and choral sound of Horst Jankowski from his 1966 album, More Genius of Jankowski; then the rich, lush orchestrations of the Clebanoff Strings. Only Ray Conniff could pull off a vocalized version of Dueling Banjos, right? After that, we move into a 1970 tune from El Chicano; then The Soulful Strings from their 1967 album, Groovin’ with The Soulful Strings; a track from Don Costa from his 1967 album, Modern Delights; and finally, the title track of this set by Helmut Zacharias & His Orchestra from their 1969 album, Zacharias Plays The Hits.
