about

In early 1979, Danny received a commission to compose a soundtrack for the prestigious World About Us BBC Television Series. The program was entitled Roads To Eldorado. Danny along with his brand new Danny Adler Band, created this soundtrack in the form of a suite made up of 15 movements. This is a work that is meant to convey the atmosphere and energy of a road trip through the Big Sky Western USA territory.
Also included in this LP is a rockin’ 1979 audition for EMI Records, recorded at the Manchester Square headquarters (where The Beatles posed for their Please Please Me album cover). Enjoy this refreshing journey!
