The Elevator Collection is an entertaining budget-line collection of ten easy-listening and lounge versions of traditional pop songs like "Moonlight in Vermont," "Harlem Nocturne," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Blue Moon," "Stars Fell on Alabama" and "That Old Black Magic." There's only one vocal track, which happens to be from Ann-Margret, but the rest are instrumentals from the likes of Buddy Morrow, Hugo Winterhalter, Ralph Flanagan, the Three Suns, Marty Gold and Esquivel. There are a couple of weak moments, and it doesn't quite qualify as "elevator music" in some places, but it's still a good easy-listening collection for Gen-X.
