It's Playing In The Hardware Store


This is the seventh, and final, disc from the Seeburg "1000" Series background music set distributed to subscribers for play beginning on October 1, 1969.  It completes the final easy listening set for use during the fourth quarter of the year.
This might be the best of the lot and it cleaned up quite well.  The sample track is a super tasty jazz organ version of "Laura:"

It's Playing In The Hotel Lobby

On this sixth installment from Seeburg's October 1969 "Mood" music set distribution of easy listening background music we get a nice mix of tempos and styles. 

A few sound like performances of familiar songs by familiar artists while most are fresh compositions by groups and orchestras for hire.

Sammy Davis, Jr. had a major hit with the sample track, a snappy instrumental rendition here, "Gonna Build A Mountain:"

It's Playing In The Flower Shop

Here is disc 5 in the October 1969 Seeburg "1000" Background Music edition.  There is a little George Shearing among the easy listening tracks in this one. 

I was able to identify the familiar tunes that were popular in the era but as usual most seem to be "custom" compositions.

The sample track, from the movie, is "The Knack:"
