CPM

Fans of the old Capital Hi-Q series will have plenty to rejoice over. For the last 9 months or so, the folks at Carlin Production Music (CPM) have been doing a phenomenal job of restoring and reissuing the music from this library with composers like William Loose, Emil Cadkin, Philip Green, and Jack Cookery. Granted, the songs have all been renamed. But at this point, I've almost come to accept it as part of the nature of the beast. And given the alternative (paying top dollar for scratched and worn out records....IF you can even find them!) I guess I can't complain. They're up to collection #5 right now and after hearing all of them, I can hardly wait to see what gets released next. Like all library music, you can't just walk into a store and buy this stuff. Then again how many people actually listen to this stuff anyways? Just the few of us. Thank God for the internet, heh? Anyhow, most of the music from those 5 collections (CPM-1, CPM-2, CPM-3, CPM-4, and CPM-5) are included here. A majority of the links (many of them are under 10 seconds long) were NOT included along with the 30 second versions of songs which are already on here. This would've been redundant after awhile. What you do get is 184 tracks. Enough for a long drive, or just a lazy Sunday afternoon at home. Here's a PDF of the track listings. Everything is tagged, but I didn't number them. So the songs will play in alphabetical order by default. I think you'll enjoy this one.
