A Latin Love-In
Maybe some people could pass on picking up a record with a cover like this, but I am not one of those people.
This one was worth grabbing for more than just the cover. Tony Mottola was a very sensitive guitar player (he did a number of recording dates with Sinatra, and was a member of his touring band in later years). The orchestrations are brash and over-the-top in typical Enoch Light fashion. If you are not too hung up on the idea of "good taste" this is a very fun album to listen to.
As far as I can tell this was never issued on CD, but somehow it is available on iTunes.
