CD Reviews

The Ultimate Party CD
D. B. Rathbun | Washington, DC United States | 12/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is not obvious from the song titles, but this is a collection of mambo versions of popular tunes from the 1960s and other pieces. It has mambo versions of the theme to the monkeys, over the rainbow, i've been working on the railroad, and perhaps the best, a mambo version of dance of the sugar plum fairies from tchaikovsky's nutcracker. It is such a vulgar bastardization of these tunes that it is simply wonderful. It is especially good for parties because it's festive, cheesy mambo music, but occasionally it catches someone's ear, and they recognize it and wonder what the tune is, not realizing it's a mambo version of a familiar tune like over the rainbow."
