A friend of mine dropped of Raymond Scott CD (Microphone Music) for me to listen to. I had never heard of him before.
When I listened to the recoding I was blown away - it sounded like music from the '30s or '40s but recorded with more modern technology. I thought "this stuff has either been recoded extremely well in the first place or it had been restored - maybe a combination of both"
Then I did a little research and discovered that he was a pioneer of recording and a fantastic musician - kind of like Les Paul.
If you have not listened to this music, I highly recommend it for both musical and technical value

Carl Stalling adapted a lot of Raymond Scott's music for the Warner Bros cartoons...this is just one of many familiar Scott compositions that wound up in many Looney Tunes classics.
