These Dick Hyman records are classic. My favorite bit of Hyman trivia
is his playing the "theremin" part on the original Dark Shadows tv
show theme. Robert Cobert, the composer/conductor stated that it was
actually a string sound from one of Hyman's synthesizers. I've read
that most of the early cues for that show were recorded in the UK
because it was cheaper not to have to pay the American performer
royalties, but it seems likely that the theme would've been recorded
in NY. Tom, do you know anything about where that recording was made?
This would've been in 1966.
