Conductor and arranger John Wilson leads a cast of singers and his eponymous orchestra on this recording of some of the greatest songs from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Most of the scores have been painstakingly reconstructed by Wilson, after MGM destroyed the originals in 1969. This is the first time many of the songs, including "Singin’ in the Rain,” “Steppin’ Out with My Baby,” “The Trolley Song,” and title track “That’s Entertainment,” have been recorded in their intended orchestration since the films’ original soundtrack recordings.

EMI Records is offering the track "You're Sensational" sung by Seth MacFarlane from John Wilson Orchestra: That's Entertainment for SFCV readers to download and enjoy.
