From the back cover: In conductor Lew Raymond we have a master craftsman, unerringly sensitive to his art; in singers Marni Nixon, Gene Marline, Norma Zimmer, Bonnie Lou Williams and Charles Peck, Tops is privileged to present some of the for most vocal talent on records today. Miss Nixion to cite one example, has "ghosted" many motion picture soundtracks for the brightest stars in movies and now is building a noteworthy career in light opera.

Alfred Newman Conducts The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra
Music For Orchestra
Invitation To The Ballet
Mercury Records MG 20036
From Billboard - December 23, 1950: One of two new Newman long-play collections, this is a collection of alternately lush and blood and thundering standards – on one side selected from the ballet literature and the other from miscellany. This is just the kind of thing which made Newman's Majestic recordings of a couple of years ago so tremendously popular. These sides have the same vigorous qualities which set up Andre Koslelanetz on record. They are beautiful recorded, incidentally, with an accent on startling detail achieved with reverberation. This is ideal middlebrow stuff with a decided pop market appeal.
