Perhaps one of the most sought after albums by the great late, one and only true "Mambo King", Cuban band leader, pianist and composer,Damaso Perez Prado,who combined talents with famed American singer Rosemary Clooney for this early 60's album. Enjoy listening to Mambo versions of great all time classics like, "Corazon de Melon", "Adios","Mack the Knife", "Sway", "Magic is the Moonlight","I've Got Plenty of Nothing", "Cu Cu rru Cu Cu Paloma", "In a Little Spanish Town", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Bali Hai", "Like a Woman" and "Yo do Something to Me". This great compilation originally recorded and released on Vynil Lp format during the early 1960's, was discontinued after a few years and since then became an expensive and evasive collector's item for decades. Now, luckily it is available again on CD format. Album liners were written by equally famous Hollywood screen actor Jose Ferrer, then married to Rosemary. All these attributes make this compilation unique. Clooney and Prado should've been recorded extensively but unfortunately they only joined in this one and only recording project. I highly recommend it, do not miss this rare gem.

In 1959, Rosemary Clooney joined the illustrious roster of singers who recorded with Cuban Mambo King and creator Perez Prado & His Band (Beny More, Myrtha Silva, Daniel Santos, Los Rivero, Hermanas Montoya, Hermanas Gaona, Tony Camargo, Kiko Mendive, Abel del Rivero, etc.)
At the time RCA Victor released two hit combination Lp, one was Abbie Lane with Tito Puente & His Orchestra and Rosemary Clooney with Perez Prado & His Orchestra, the album title they picked for the latter was "A Touch Of Tabasco". Unfortunately some 20+ years ago this album was discontinued and leftover copies were very hard or impossible to find. With the emerging of the internet some folks who owned copies asked for large sums of money for their copies. Luckily one day about two years ago, I found that this album had been converted from analog to digital and therefore CD by Japan's BMG/RCA, which explained its total absence from North American music markets. At long last this album has come back to us but in limited quantities. You will greatly enjoy listening to this classic as Rosemary sings old favorites backed by Perez Prado's phenomenal Mambo Jazz Band,like "Corazon De Melon", "Like A Woman", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Magic Is The Moonlight"aka "Te Quiero Dijiste", "In A Little Spanish Town",
"Mack The Knife"aka "Moritat", "Bali Hai","You Do Something To Me","Cu-Cu-Rru-Cu-Cu Paloma","I Got Plenty O'Nuttin", "Sway"aka Quien Sera" and "Adios".

I bought this LP at a yard sale in Lewiston Maine about 20 years ago and for years it was one of the few things I could count on in life to always make me happy. Rosie's honeyed belt voice and pure old-fashioned vocal style (when she hits a note, she nails it -- hell, she *owns* it!) never fail to please, and here it is juxtaposed with energetic Latin drums and brass that match it strength for strength. The songlist includes some very un-Latin standards dressed up in flamenco sleeves, with effects varying from humorous to sublime -- but never dull!

Perez Prado's spectacular recordings from the 60's,are easily recognized due to the unique mambo sound: screaming trumpets, repetitvie sax-riffs combined with trombones barking. Together with Rosemary Clooney, this CD really offers several all time high recordings, excellent for any occation. My favorite: Sway (forget about easylistening recordings, Dean Martin etc...Clooney and Prado offers something else on this tunes!)

I've never thought I could love A Touch of Tabasco as I do. I got mine recently. What a perfect match. The sound is superb (24 bt).

It's a kind of album to listen at with a smile on the face. Tabasco makes me happy.

Clooney's voice is unique. Her unmistakable timbre and phrasing proves that she is one of the best singers among her pairs.

Prado's orchestration is so spontaneous and pure swing. It's latin and jazzy simultaneously.

I like to listen Tabasco alone or along Rosie Solves the Swingin Riddle, Swings Softly, Love and Beautiful Ballads. In spite of the different moods, the songs go very well together when you shuffle them. The result is surprising.

When in latin mood, I sugest to combine Tabasco with Latin Alla Lee/Ole Alla Lee/Guitars a la Lee (Peggy Lee), El Senor Bing (Bing Crosby), Latin in a Satin Mood (Julie London) and Latin for Lovers (Doris Day).

My high favorites songs of Tabasco: Corazón de Melón, Like a Woman, Magic is the Moonlight, In a Little Spanish Town, Mack the Knife, You Do Something to Me, Cu-cu-rru-cu-cu Paloma, I Got Plenty o' Nothing and Adios.

Like a Woman is so personal.

It's impossible not getting in dancing mood when listening to the first accords of Corazón the Melón.

Her voice makes me thrill when she sings "...I whispered be true to me and he sighed si si..." (Little Spanish Town). Orchestration and voice lead you to a magic moment.

Yes, as you can see, I don't like Bali Ha'I (any of its versions). Maybe because of South Pacific 1958 Film Soundtrack version that I hate body and soul.
