Leroy Anderson was the composer behind light music classics such as 'The Typewriter', and the Christmas favourite, 'Sleigh Ride'. Championed by Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, Anderson has been dubbed by John Williams as "one of the great American masters of light orchestral music."
Anderson was released from active army duty in 1945 and moved to New York to pursue his composing career. The family spent the summer of 1946 in Connecticut, where Anderson began composing Sleigh Ride - during a heat wave! The Boston Pops' single of it was originally issued on red vinyl.
