Moods for Lovers - Lew White

We love lovers here at the Starlite Lounge, and continuing our theme of organ magic, here's a 10 incher from Lew White called "Moods For Lovers".  Get yourself an old-fashioned, and listen to these old-fashioned musty organ romps.  We especially love Lew's take on "September Song", which appears on a few of these hi-fi releases--yes, we love it because it was on "Voices In Motion".  So sue us.

Lew also offers up seven other moody organ tracks here, and who knew an organ put people in the mood for love?  Yes folks, it's not just for funeral homes and skating rinks anymore.  Go get another old-fashioned, you really tore through that first one.  You're gonna have a hangover tomorrow.

  1. Thanks.
    This is one of Enoch Light's productions. The Waldorf LPs & EPs were exclusively for Woolworth's. The same tracks were used for his other budget LPs for the budget racks (under different names), and also for Grand Award (for sale in record stores).
    The keyboard LPs were often done by Dick Hyman.

  2. I'm glad you stopped by, and thanks for your input. Please share here whenever you have some info about our features! So many of the albums are relatively anonymous, and difficult to research.

  3. Many thanks - most appreciated!

    The distinctive cover art is by artist David Stone Martin, who created the artwork for over 400 record albums during his career.

    He is best known for the covers he produced in the 1950s for many classic jazz albums from Norman Granz's labels (Clef, Norgran, and Verve), including classic albums from Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Lester Young, and many others.




    1. Thanks, Montag the Magnificent! I wasn't aware of Mr. Martin's career, but I am now. Please share any info you have on these releases whenever the spirit moves you.
