Established in 1941 by Teddy Holmes, the Chappell Recorded Music Library has numerous well-known television and radio themes to its credit. The focus in this instance, however, is very much on the Chappell Library as it was in the 1970s. The music is of the funky, jazzy, dramatic variety - in fact, much of it sounds like it belongs in a '70s spy movie or cop show. Chappell's leading composers are featured - Roger Webb, Pete Moore, James Clarke, Tony Osborne, Cy Payne - alongside two superb French composers, Jack Arel and Pierre Dutour, both of whom wrote extensively for Chappell France's Dance and Mood Music series of library albums. Exciting, jazz-tinged big band and orchestral music is served up here, all of it performed by leading session musicians and most of it recorded by John Timperley in Chappell's famous studio located in the heart of London's fashionable Mayfair district. Includes an 8-page booklet detailing the history of the Chappell Library as well as biographical information and the stories behind the music. Remastered from the original analogue tapes.
