Music Used in Many Popular Television Commercials and Their Sponsors: Bosworth Ensembles

This album, released in 1974, provides a glimpse into the world of television advertising in the 1970s, featuring music from commercials for products such as Dannon Yogurt, Volkswagen, and Zenith TV. Each track in this 15-song collection was composed with a specific theme or mood designed to showcase but not distract from the product. For example, the music for Lincoln/Mercury (“Slow Glow”) is slow and relaxed, the music for Ford (“Sun Trap”) hints at adventure and excitement, and the music for Oldsmobile (“Beat Bossa Nova”) suggests an afternoon at the beach. Recording information is limited to song titles, composers, and sponsors.
