*AOE TWO NEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1»N By RICHARD KLEINER NBA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — One recording development ol 1»3, that may • even have more lasting effects than the doggie in the window, is the release of Musical Sound Books. These are 51 records lor "young listeners." Paul Lazare and Dr. Miller McClintock. who are behind the project, have long felt that most children's records are -comic-book music." So they* set about lo do something better- Musical Sound Books, the result, are mostly gay classical selections, many written specifically for children. There are such things as Schumann's "Scenes From Childhood." Bizet's "Children's Games," Saint- saens 1 "Carnival ol the Animals.' DICK'S PICKS , SUREFIRE: "jungle Bells" (Les Paul and Mary Ford, Capitol). SLEEPER: "Robe of Calvary" (Jill Corey, Columbia). GOOD ONES :"C hanging Partners" (Kay Starr, Capitol); "Why Does It Have to Be Me?" (Tony Bennett, Columbia); "Mama's Gone. Good-Bye" (Pee Wee Hunt. Capitol); "Native Dancer" (Rusty Draper, Mercury); "Joey's Theme From 'Little Fugitive," (Eddy Manson, Columbia); "Cool Water" (Billy May, Capitol). POP ALBUMS: "Christmas With Arthur Godfrey" (Colum- , bia) has Godfrey's gang doing j the Yuletide favorites. There's- even a song called "The Christmas Song" by a tenor named LaRosa. . . • There are plenty of laughs on "Anna Eussell Sings! Again?" (Columbia) with Miss Russell satirizing opera, women's clubs and Gilbert and Sullivan. CLASSICAL: Two full-length operas- Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde" .(RCA-Victor) stari Kirsten FlagstRd and Ludwlg Suthaus, and Stravinsky's 'The Rakes Progress" (Columbia) has Hilde Gueden. Blanche Thebom and Eugene Conley in the top roles. . . . Menahem Press'er playsShostakovitch's 24 Preludes for the piano (MOM) and another pianist, Ania Dorfman, performs Chopin's Waltzes, complete (Bluebird). signed a new vocalist, Cathy Collins. . . . That weird rhythm, that makes Richard Hayes' record, "The Long Black Rifle," so fascinating, is made by playing a snare drum on top of a kettle drum. Mercury credits Hayes him«cll with devising the Idea. ON THE CLASSICS: NBC-TV's vastly-moving production. "Victory at Sea," was an emotional experience which left us often thrilled and exhausted. How great a part the special score created by Richard Rodsera had in creating these moods can be realized by listening to RCA-Victor's record of an orchestral aulte from the score, arranged and conducted by Robert Russell Bennett. It stands by Itsell as deeply expressive music, and to those who are haunted by the Twisters Strike Florida/ Louisiana PANAMA CITY. FU. (/Pj-Residents of Woodvllle, a smull north- nwest Florida commuiilty, cleared up debris today after * roaring Sunday morning tornado which smashed six homo and left 21 injured.
