Audio Ephemera: European Holiday

ometime in the 50s SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) made this promotional record aimed at the US market.

The B side is not very interesting it only consists of three pieces of classical Scandinavian music ("Suite ancienne" /Johan Halvorsen, "Pastoral suite" /Lars-Erik Larsson, "Champagne galop" /H.C. Lumbye). Not bad but you will find better recordings.

The A side, however, is made as a sort of musical...

"Pictures, colorful as they may be, tell only a part of the wonders of Europe. Even pictures with exciting words can't tell all the story. It takes 3D to bring a European Holiday to full, glorious life... pictures, words - AND MUSIC! And that's why this records was born.
"European Holiday" is a star feature of the giant-size S A S Travel PLanning Kit.
Here is the most exciting way ever devised for planning your trip. You see pictures of the wonderful sights in Europe... read about them....and the HEAR about hem too in this gay, romantic, Mitch Miller production. So start the music - and start dreaming!"

Oops, trodde jeg hadde skrevet en takk her. Mente det iallefall. For side a er sjarmerende og morsom. Kunne være spennende å lage en miks rundt den - men det er en annen sak. Takk :)
