In tribute to the greatest of all the Lords Of Lounge, James Last, who died yesterday at the age of 86, here is a huge double album filled with Spanish and South American flavours!
A Spanish issue but with English writing, it is easy to deduce that this was marketed at British tourists as a souvenir of their holiday; the inside even comes with postcard-style photos of the resorts and sights of the Spanish Costas and cities, and the cover has a picture of Hansi himself dressed as a matador!
The tracks themselves [23 of!] hold few surprises really, but are still well worth a listen, featuring nice brassy runs though Granada, Brazil, Deliciado, La Bamba, Mexican Hat Dance, Patricia and Cherry Pink, but my favourite is the entertaining Valencia.
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
