We've Only Just Begun/Love Story Review

by Al Campbell

Originally released on Columbia, these two Ray Conniff albums, We've Only Just Begun and Love Story, zero in on easy listening versions (or elevator music) of early-'70s pop hits. This collection includes formulaic treatments of popular compositions by Lennon and McCartney, Bacharach/David, Ray Stevens, Neil Diamond, and Gordon Lightfoot. Not an essential purchase by a long shot, but this disc will provide kitschy moments for your next cocktail party. In 2002, Collectables began reissuing Conniff's Columbia titles as two-fers with original cover art and song sequences.
