A very nice LP in the Polydor 'circles of sound' series, a group of easy listening records from the early 70s that featured incredibly ugly sleeves and some interesting music.

The album has extremely nice orchestrations, and the layered percussion and recording date give it a similar feel to Les Baxterís Que Mango. It's a nice mix of contemporary pop and older standards, all done in the same neo-tropical style. There's no standout groovers like Que Mango's 'Tropicando', but it's very pleasant stuff anyway.
