(2-CD set) This is the first package to collate Arthur Lyman’s incredible singles releases. His music has been labelled “exotica,” “lounge” and even “world music,” but in general, he defies conventional labels. For those who do not need to put Lyman and his music into any specific bag, it is simply “easy listening” music at its very best. In a career that spanned more than 5 decades, his output has been very impressive. He recorded well over two dozen albums for the Hi-Fi label and went on to record more for GNP Crescendo. His “Taboo” album sold well in excess of 2 million copies. His single “Yellow Bird” made #4 on the American national singles chart in 1961. This set features extensive liner notes and photos.
