Liner notes: 

About once every twelve months, the best-selling piano duo of FERRANTE AND TEICHER delivers an album of the top hits of the day, performed in their own highly inimitable style. Such was the case with their memorable sets, “The People’s Choice,” “By Popular Demand,” and “Only The Best.” It is now that time again, and so for the thousands upon thousands of FERRANTE AND TEICHER devotees, United Artists Records proudly presents “YOU ASKED FOR IT!”

The format for this collection is indeed a simple one. FERRANTE AND TEICHER and their producer, LeRoy Holmes, have carefully culled through the best-seller charts and the most-played songs of recent months, then added several selections which have been among the most requested on their cross-country concert tours. The huge, lush, string-filled FERRANTE AND TEICHER Orchestra under the baton of talented Nick Perito was called in and the result is sheer magic!

Included are tunes that originally came to the fore as teen-age favorites, but have been transformed into evergreens by the eloquent instrumental touch of our geniuses of the keyboard. As a matter of fact, it is that very special touch that you have cheered time and time again. It is always unique. It can be spirited and effervescent or it can be romantic and haunting. However, it never fails to delight listeners.

Here then is “YOU ASKED FOR IT!,” the fine melodies of recent vintage done to a superb turn by the imaginative and winning team of FERRANTE AND TEICHER.
