Released in 1966 by A&M Records in both mono (LP 118) and stereo (SP 4118), the Baja Marimba Band's WATCH OUT! opens and closes with two charting singles. "Portugeuse Washerwoman" (from 10/66) peaked at #126 on Billboard's Bubbling Under chart and at #15 on Adult Contemporary. "Ghost Riders in the Sky" (11/66) made #4 on A.C. (this Latin-flavored nonet's highest chart position), and #52 Hot 100. The album reached #54 on Billboard's 200.

Back in '66, "Washerwoman" was a track heard occasionally on easy listening stations, but chances are you never knew its name. Julius Wechter, Baja's founder and director, was once a member of Martin Denny's exotica cocktail music group (remember "Quiet Village"?). He plays the solo on "The More I See You." That lone trumpet in the second verse sounds suspiciously like Herb Alpert, and it very well may be him; Herb co-produced and arranged these sessions. "Yours" features twin marimbas playing in unison. Very pleasant. "Somewhere My Love" has nice mandolin counterpoint at far left sound stage and a chime on the right. Strings enter for the second chorus.

"Gay Ranchero" is a jolly number with yipping background noises and a horn chorus that almost seems blotto. "Spanish Moss" is this LP's only Wechter original. "Telephone Song" is a fine little ditty tailored to this group's unique sound. The melancholy "Tomorrow Will Be Better," written by Mr. Alpert, has subdued strings plus a few male voices and a soprano that all hold "ahhhh" notes. It ends with a tasty Spanish guitar flourish. "Ghost Riders" as you might expect is a fast-paced gallop that's propelled by castanet hoofbeats. It sounds like all the guys are whooping and hollering on this familiar tune. The "yippee ti ay" part is done as a tongue-in-cheek dirge.
