Hop an intercontinental flight with Bob & Susan and journey through the provocative streets of Paris on this Process 70 Series 2000 easy listening day-trip from Gorden Jenkins and His Orchestra. Simply titled France, this Time Records stereo release is courageous in its approach to bringing the listener “in” to the French experience. Complete with between-song sound effects and comical dialogue (circa: 1962), you, the listener, can piggyback through the wondrous sounds (no sights, kids… this is a record, remember) of an actual French vacation… given that the vacation isn’t yours and you’re subject to the predestined locations that strategically complement the next song to spill from your living room speakers (or kitchen, I don’t know where you keep your stereo set-up… no judgements here). Check it out. It’s certainly not an everyday listen, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
I’m not at all sure why it’s necessary to own two copies of Peter, Paul and Mary’s 1962 debut but nevertheless, it’s a reality. Does this mean that I listen to this classic twice as much? Well, no, but there’s a good reason in there somewhere… I think.
Part insert, part cover (thanks to the die-cut heavy duty outer shell), this glossy sleeve to Esquivel and His Orchestra’s 1962 classic, and Space Age Pop essential, Latin-Esque

For the saddest (and most abhorrent) day in this nation’s modern day history, let’s drown our sorrows in, and (attempt to) ignore the incoming storm of racist ignorance with Bikinis and Bongos. Because, let’s face it… heavy, heavy drugs won’t be near enough to get us through the next 1461 days.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for Pachanga! Antobal’s Latin All Stars under the direction of Obdulio Morales manifests afro-Cuban greatness with their 1962 release from Brunswick Records titled, Pachanga… PACHANGA! Just when I was thinking how my late March, Thursday evening needed some soulful cha-cha, this lovely, and immensely exciting album came to mind. That is all.
