AllMusic Review by

In the early years of stereo LPs, many releases, such as Manny Albam's More Double Exposure, sought to show off the ability to move instruments between channels. The arranger's follow up to his earlier Top Rank LP, Double Exposure, once again features ten pairs of tunes, two interwoven with one another as opposed to playing them in a medley. While in some cases the pieces have complimentary chord structures, "In a Mellow Tone" is actually based upon the changes to its partner, "Rose Room," so Albam is hardly breaking new ground by combining the two. While the music is pleasant, it isn't particularly remarkable, nor did the label bother to identify the musicians taking part in the sessions. This long-unavailable RCA Victor LP will be of interest exclusively to die-hard fans of Manny Albam.
