The Lonely BullTaste Of Honey
Design Records DLP-248
What struck me about this cover is that it looks like I might find Martin Denny's name on it somewhere. It has a late 60s Denny feel to it.
There are some fun "Tijuana brass" albums out there. I have a few that entertain me so I pick them up on chance that they well at least have some 60s weirdness going on. This album starts out with a reasonably engaging cover of A Taste Of Honey. But then, for the next three tracks, the album goes weirdly into... like 40s ball room easy listening before it tries to get back on theme with a standard Mexican flavored tune.
Side two kicks off with a fun version of Zorba The Greek and does a little better staying on theme but by the third track the music slides into some big band swing thing.
The group's name is hidden in the lower left hand corner of the cover. It sounds like Design didn't have enough "Toronadoes" material and filled the album with some stock music. And the sample tune I posted, the best track on the album, sounds weirdly different as if Design had that tune sitting on the shelf and used it as fill. I swear that I've heard this exact track on another album!
Anyway... I think that once again full filled my mission to bring fans of The Atomic Attic the best budget albums that no one else would pay $1 at The Goodwill.
