The Francis Bay Big Band was a big seller in its day, specializing in stereo recreations of big band classics. This is one of those but with souped up engineering to show off the new dimensional reality of stereo. It was chosen for release because of this. This is one of the favorite Francis Bay recordings (Google Francis Bay to confirm). The sound is the medium being expressed. All tunes are Perez Prado classics, and a few are fairly jazzed up versions. Very fun to listen to.
