Overview

The Real... Ray Conniff is an exhaustive three-disc collection from Columbia Records celebrating the smooth and joyful sounds of the king of 1960s easy listening. Ray Conniff debuted as a trombonist for several prominent big bands before becoming a staff arranger at Columbia in the '50s. Beginning in 1956, he launched a prolific solo career leading his own orchestra, recording and arranging easy listening instrumental music for the adult albums market. His albums were a massive success, selling well over 50 million throughout his lengthy career, which peaked in the '60s. Featured on this compilation are 60 of his most memorable recordings of hits, from Gershwin's "'S Wonderful" to the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody."
