How often has the host of a party had difficulty deciding just what record to play for his guests? The probable answer is— more often than not. It was with this in mind that the impresarios from Art + Text decided to make this long-playing record, meeting the requirements of any host, and one that would also provide a happy atmosphere for any gathering of people.
Initially they had difficulty finding a label. Maybe in that threatened, fearful, insecure way publishers have, they were becoming suspicious or uncertain of their endeavours. But here at Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft we thought otherwise. From its very first release this festschrift of their best work achieved instant appeal, rapport, impact and maybe a number of other things besides.
We hope you enjoy yourselves and have a memorable party!
