The Portofino Variations - Various Artists (2LP)
Basta Music Store
On this album, one of Raymond Scott’s most popular electronic compositions, "Portofino," is interpreted by 20 artists, each version uniquely arranged, recorded and produced in an array of styles: surf guitar, whistling, electronica, chamber ensemble, minimalism, pop, rock guitar, and scat vocals. There’s even two song versions with original lyrics.
The album cover art was adapted from a 1962 unpublished painting entitled "Portofino" by noted artist/illustrator James (Jim) Flora; the original Flora painting is reproduced in the album's gatefold interior.
Please note this vinyl edition (2LP -1000 copies on 180gr, gold vinyl) contains 2 extra tracks: 2 Raymond Scott original recordings. The CD lacks those 2 tracks, and can be found here.
