Music for the Work Week

Raymond Scott's "Powerhouse" is the classic music for scenes of industry in cartoons (a hens-laying-eggs assembly line comes immediately to mind) but he had other compositions that were more popular at the time of their introduction.

Today's 10" LP gathers eight of his well-known tracks together as "Raymond Scott's Drawing Room."

Raymond Scott Quintet - Raymond Scott's Drawing Room (Columbia cl 6083)

In An Eighteenth Century Drawing Room
Business Man's Bounce
The Peanut Vendor
Huckleberry Duck
Pretty Little Petticoat
Boy Scout in Switzerland
The Toy Trumpet
