I think we made the right call with this album- it displays Hawken’s piano virtuosity like no other

i don't know all the variations. and of course i am an annie haslam freak.


Haslam’s voice is shot unfortunately nowadays. However she keeps touring. Dunford’s version probably sounded better!

It was not released in the US on vinyl, only later on CD I believe. The LP was an expensive import.



I love this album too

I’ve had it 55 years and it gets 3 or 4 plays a year (but significant more in the first decade of its release - I couldn’t stop playing it!

Try The Sound Of Dreams First Movement by David Minasian with Haslam singing. It’s awful.

In other news, I’m really enjoying this album. I’m sure I heard it a few decades ago and wasn’t impressed at the time. The keyboards are excellent.
