A year or more abo they started compiling (mostly) seasonally-themed albums. I think the first I remember getting was the summer-related”Banana Splits” volume (which spawned a “Volume 2” this past summer. For Easter they did “Bunny Hop” and Halloween brought “The Shadow Knows”. Just in time for Halloween and Thanksgiving comes this album (as well as “Yulesville”, which I’ll review separately.
Using the 80-minute-plus time that a CD will hold, “Autumn Leaves” contains 29 “Golden Season” recordings from the 40s, 50s and 60s whose titles or lyrics reflect the season when we prepare for winter. Most are from obscure 45 rpm records on small labels as well as a few songs you probably remember – if you are over 60 years old. But I doubt you have any of these in your music library (or could find them if you do) and there are some that I was thrilled I found.
