Oh, this one really swings. Quite possibly the best in the series, this one never fails to please. From the tickling ivories opening the "Theme from Route 66" (a song that makes you feel like you've gone back in time) to the fading wails of "Melancholy Serenade" (Jackie Gleason's theme song), you're in for a fun, cool, sexy ride!
People say "Sexe" is a little too obvious. Well, yeah, it is, but the real fun comes during the sax solo, which has the power to ease you into a relaxing calm...but not too relaxed! On the other end of the spectrum is the rocking, rollicking "Night Train" which (along with the suspicious and menacing "A Shot in the Dark" and the superior "Street Scene '58") is the most blasting tune that disturbs the general ease and quiet of the disc. Although Sam Butera's double-shot of "The Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Fever" isn't so meek, either. "Boulevard" is Sam at his raspy best, and "Fever" is no less than hilarious (listen to those deep-voiced guys chanting "Feva!")
"Like Young" is nice, but totally ruined here if you've heard the beautiful version on Volume 8. Martin Denny turns in an excellent "Harlem Nocturne." "Topsy" takes it nice 'n easy here on an organ (sounds great), but is shown up by Cy Coleman's lovely "Playboy's Theme," from the Playboy show in the '60s. A bachelor's anthem accompanied by a soft touch on the ride cymbal and a gracefully jazzy piano, this tune is just as can be expected--smooth, silky, and sexy, leisurely floating along on gossamer strings. (For a fantastic Latin version of this song, check out Poncho Sanchez's 'Afro-Cuban Fantasy' CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best ULTRA-LOUNGE recording of them all August 7, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I recently discovered "Lounge" music, and have purchased many CDs of this type in the past year. Of these, the "Ultra-Lounge" series seems to be the most consistently enjoyable, and of the "Ultra-Lounge" series, this one is, I feel, the very best. You get saucy, perky, colorful versions of lounge classics such as "Harlem Nocturne," "Night Train," and "Fever." The most enjoyable track of all--especially if you are familiar with the Bettie Page striptease loops from the '50s--is a riveting and sexy version of the ubiquitous "Caravan." (I have about 15 different versions of this song, and the one on this CD is my favorite.) All in all, this is Lounge music at its brashest and brassiest. P.S.: You don't have to be a bachelor to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't imagine a better cd to go with a stiff martini February 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
There was a period in time, well before mine, where the partially misplaced egocentric moralities of today were replaced with a good stiff drink and a beautiful woman. This cd represents one of Ultra Lounge's best compilations that if you happen upon a night of wanten low morality (as per today's confused standards) and find the mischievous woman of your dreams than you both can crank up the tunes, let down your guards and settle in for a night of pure unadulterated fun - swingin', swanky retro style! This cd oozes the lust (and testosterone) that runs through our veins so therefore, it's one of the best things to ever happen to womankind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Swingin' and Sexy! June 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When one considers the low-hemline moral order of 50's middle America, 'Bachelor Pad Royale' remaps to somewhere short of the 'Basic Instinct' Director's Cut. Using mostly oblique references to the big nasty, (the biggest exception being Line Rinaud's indelicately titled 'Sexe') this compilation fuses the unbridled erotic energy that one would today attribute to Lords of Acid with the brazen, flirty, mascara'd, come-hither, cigarette-manhandling hussies of yesteryear. Combined with the next two volumes in the UL collection, 'Wild, Cool and Swingin' and 'Rhapsodesia', the UL masters have filled your three-disc carousel (on randomize, of course) for a night of unbridled passion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lounge Gold March 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This collection is almost too cool for the average.
A collection so perfectly paced it leaks retro-cool.
From travelin' music of "Route 66 theme" to the cold rainy Sunday morning sounds of "Black Coffee" this is a must have for the Atomic Lounge cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't Milt Buckner win a Grammy? September 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I don't know either. "The Monster" is more rockin' and catchy than anything on MTV.
This is my very favorite of the Ultra-Lounge cd's. It's the sort of coctail album one can play at a party of mixed company, and whether they are punk, hiphop, classical or country fans, they will be snapping their fingers and tapping their toes without even knowing it. I know; it happened to me.
The tracks are enjoyable from the first to the last, so take good care of this one-it will be played a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars What could be better? November 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this for Alvino Rey's "Night Train" and have listened to it about nine times now, annoying my neighbors to no end I am sure. In addition to "Night Train" which sounds like something that would be played as the Rat Pack walked through your door there is the theme song from "Our Man Flint", "Black Coffee" and "Theme from Route 66". A lot of
people purchase these CDs for their kitsch value, but if
you listen beyond that you'll hear some damned good music.
