Georgie Fame - Georgie Does This Thing With Strings




Georgie Does His Thing with Strings draws on arranger Keith Mansfield's past as a sound library maestro to create a lush, sweeping approach with a distinctively cinematic edge. Its moody, mellow sensibilities perfectly complement Georgie Fame's increasingly mature vocals, which sidestep the R&B inflections of his previous records in favor of a poignant style rooted in jazz and traditional pop--the inclusion of Bacharach/David gems like "This Guy's in Love with You" and "A House Is Not a Home" further underscores the session's sophistication and elegance.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
