Brian Wilson
MusicWeb International, December 2010

ANDERSON, L.: Orchestral Music, Vol. 3 – Sleigh Ride / The Typewriter / Plink, Plank, Plunk! / The Syncopated Clock 8.559357
ANDERSON, L.: Irish Suite / Sandpaper Ballet / Song of the Bells / The Typewriter (Anderson and His Pops Concert Orchestra) (1952–1954) 9.80764

I recommended Volumes 4 and 5 of the complete Naxos Leroy Anderson series two years ago (December 2008 Roundup) and the third volume is equally good. I make one small reservation, however, in favour of another download from classicsonline, Anderson’s own recordings from 1952 and 1954, still sounding extremely well and adding an extra touch of joie de vivre. The difference is especially noticeable in the case of The Typewriter and Sandpaper Ballet, where the unconventional solo ‘instruments’ are almost inaudible on the newer recording, but can be clearly heard in the excellent Naxos Classical Archive transfer.
