Various Artists - Classic Cafe Del Mar 
It seems like a long time since I posted an album. Just a single damn album that isn't connected to the 'Bob dylan Theme Time Radio Hour' or this never-ending 'Hendrix - Straight Ahead Special'!!
So I decided to go with one of my favourites. Well, OK I won't go that far. It is a good album though and stands up to scrutiny. My unfogiving scrutiny that is, maybe yours is a different kind.
The blend of some of the most recognisable Classics intertwined with the inimitable sound that can only come from the producer(s) of the Cafe Del Mar series, make for some good lowdown relaxing, mood enhancing tunes. This album is finely crafted. It doesn't go too far and really doesn't feel contrived which is my usual gripe when people start messing about with classical music and trying to put a new spin on it with either techno, trance or some other invention they just thought up. This one seems to have been well thought out. It hits the spot and doesn't leave you feeling like you've been conned (especially when you download it for free).
On this occassion I will give you the tracklist, only so that you can see the versions of the classics that are contained herein.
1. Meditation - Jules Massenet (5:12)
2. Air - Johann Sebastian Bach (5:27)
3. Fairest Isle - Henry Purcell (4:39)
4. Swan Lake - Peter I. Tchaikovsky (3:42)
5. Gymnopedie No.1 You - Erik Satie (4:34)
6. Belle Nuit Play guitar - Jacques Offenbach (4:03)
7. Adagio - Tomaso Albinoni (5:32)
8. Morning Mood - Edvard Grieg (4:25)
9. Choral Danself - Alexander Borodin (5:14)
10. Moonlight Sonata - Ludwig Van Beethoven (5:25)
11. C'est L'aconde Version - Christoph W. Gluck (3:47)
Yep, Popular Classics. It's good stuff though, try it.
