Take Your Q from the Cover

"This is cheesy. Very cheesy. Picked this up maybe 4 or 5 years ago when Radio Nova was bombarding the markets with these, 'Take Two'and etc. on the Wagram label - home to other French releases like Paris Lounge, Nueva Bossa Nova, Hotel Costes, Buddha Bar and tons of others. Admittedly this got about as much rotation as "Rue Martel" did for me. 0-2 plays. Until now.

How to describe the music? Did I mention it was cheesy? But who says that 'cheesy' can't be fun? It starts out with what might be the regular album edit of "Hi-Fi Trumpet". That's about as cutting edge as the cd gets. You're then taken on a mad lounge and soundtrack odyssey around the world! Roland Shaw's cool "Let the Love Come Through", a song that evokes images of lava lamps and 'whacky tobacky'. Or something. And wasn't "Everybody's Talking" a bit of a classic? I remember The Troublemakers sampled this loop and you can hear it on... Paris Lounge 1. Master of soundtracks Lalo Schifrin also has a cut and if you're an S-Tone Inc. fan, didn't you dig that entrance to this corny version of the classic "Spinning Wheel" (think "La Boca Del Rio") Also, have a look at who's made a Brazilian Portuguese version of "Love Story". Won't make you forget Shirley Bassey but it's still interesting. Then there's the gooey stuff like "Separation". Yikes.

There are loads of other songs on this that I could talk about. And I guess that's a good thing because, well, you can pop this in the player and first, people may say: "What in the world..." before going... "Hey, I know that song!". This does have a healthy dosage of 60's-70's bossa tunes that are extremely hard to find nowadays. But this definitely isn't for someone looking to find cutting edge cuts. If you do have this and like it, you will probably also enjoy the "Ultra-Lounge" series - especially Bossa NovaVille along with Blue Brazil."
