AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Ray Conniff LPs: Rhapsody in Rhythm and Hollywood in Rhythm, both originally part of Conniff's "In Rhythm" series. Originally issued in 1958 and 1961, respectively, each of the two-dozen tracks has a seamless continuity dominated by the romantic theme including "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing," "My Heart Stood Still," "It Might as Well Be Spring," and "Moonlight and Roses." This is an enjoyable reissue from the massive Conniff catalog on Columbia Records, but most listeners would be better served with one of the many compilations in print.
