today's records

A Taste of Honey - Mexicali Brass: okay, I'm seeing now that my love for "latin brass" is not limited to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. This has a kind of interesting rendition of Bill Bailey on it. very slow.

Bouquet - The Percy Faith Strings: some good standards on this one, but Laura probably put it over the edge. also, reading the notes on the back it's supposed to be all strings.... but, um, there's a vibraphone. when did that become a string instrument? piano could go either way I suppose.

Ray Conniff's World of Hits with His Orchestra and Chorus: really who could turn down a "world of hits"? and could you resist this lovely lady on the cover that appears to be wearing only a jaunty hat with flags representing this WORLD that is made of hits?

no, no you could not.
