A mint mono copy for $0.50. Strange to find a mono copy! This was reissued on CD in about 1995 and used to be everywhere. I quite like the Sandpipers, but I could probably boil them down to about 10 tracks. And I'm not sure if many of those tracks are on this record. But it's still quite enjoyable. Just very quiet!

It's kind of like a novelty LP with famous songs sung in a wimpy soft pop style in Spanish.

'Carmen' is particularly amusing, and I'm always partial to 'angelica', whoever's singing it (although obviously I'd like it to be Scott Walker).

Most of the best tracks seem to be arranged by Nick DeCaro; Mort Garson, Tommy LiPuma and Bruce Botnick are also involved.
