A Sign of the Times

To most people, music is a barometer of feeling, of the mood of a day, a time, a century. We feel this way, too. Because of this, we decided to do an album with today's sound, today's mood, literally A SIGN OF THE TIMES.

You see, recently I've been on tour with Bob Hope in Viet Nam, and at Army bases, on aircraft carriers, in hospitals, and I've discovered what most of you want to hear is music that is easy listening, with a contemporary beat, intimate in feeling. So, in this album we've gotten away from the old Band of Renown sound, and find that this relaxed, new approach of today is spontaneous and warm - sort of the mood achieved on the Dean Martin TV show with which we are associated.

Whether it's the exciting new South American beat of Reza, the smooth and subtle bossa nova Rhythms of How Insensitive or Little Boat, or the disarming treatment of It's Not Unusual, the tunes are the good tunes of today, and all are a reflection of our tempo of living. Some of you may want to dance, some will just want to listen ...but whatever you choose, you'll know we made this LP for you, today.

(Les Brown, from the original liner notes)
