ROSEMARY CLOONEY & PEREZ PRADO- "A Touch of Tabasco",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Touch of Tabasco (Audio CD)
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.
