Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Full marks to the compilers at Capitol for their "Ultra Lounge" idea, which, to the best of my knowledge, has run to at least 18 volumes to date. What an excellent way to breathe new life into your back catalogue. The advent of the CD certainly rejuvenated the record business - let's face it, who would have bothered buying this type of thing on reissued LP's?

The period covered on this particular volume covers the years 1957-64, and whilst almost exclusively instrumental, a couple of great vocal tracks have been thrown in. Capitol have put out a good package here, even including a cocktail recipe in the sleeve notes!

To quote: "This music puts you in a place - a Tijuana strip bar at 3 a.m." and the album has definitely got that brassy, late-night feel.

For me, tunes like "Night Train", "Harlem Nocturne", "Street Scene '58", and "Like Young" kind of sum up this sound. I'm not normally a big band fan but as long as the tune is a reasonably familiar one I can take it!

I don't think it really matters who the artists are - after all, there have been umpteen versions of "Route 66" for example. I'm sure any number of these songs have been used as background for TV series, and for me they bring forth images of black and white crime-type drama from the late 50's onwards.

Excellent stuff to listen to in the car whilst stuck on the M25 - highly recommended.

Ultra Lounge comes up with the goods again with this great collection. Emphasis is on instrumental tracks and a late-night feel. Super stuff.

Jazzy, Snazzy Tunes for your Space-Age Bachelor Pad! 7 May 2000
By "loungelizard7" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Oh, this one really swings. Quite possibly the best in the series, this one never fails to please. From the tickling ivories opening the "Theme from Route 66" (a song that makes you feel like you've gone back in time) to the fading wails of "Melancholy Serenade" (Jackie Gleason's theme song), you're in for a fun, cool, sexy ride!
People say "Sexe" is a little too obvious. Well, yeah, it is, but the real fun comes during the sax solo, which has the power to ease you into a relaxing calm...but not too relaxed! On the other end of the spectrum is the rocking, rollicking "Night Train" which (along with the suspicious and menacing "A Shot in the Dark" and the superior "Street Scene '58") is the most blasting tune that disturbs the general ease and quiet of the disc. Although Sam Butera's double-shot of "The Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Fever" isn't so meek, either. "Boulevard" is Sam at his raspy best, and "Fever" is no less than hilarious (listen to those deep-voiced guys chanting "Feva!")
"Like Young" is nice, but totally ruined here if you've heard the beautiful version on Volume 8. Martin Denny turns in an excellent "Harlem Nocturne." "Topsy" takes it nice 'n easy here on an organ (sounds great), but is shown up by Cy Coleman's lovely "Playboy's Theme," from the Playboy show in the '60s. A bachelor's anthem accompanied by a soft touch on the ride cymbal and a gracefully jazzy piano, this tune is just as can be expected--smooth, silky, and sexy, leisurely floating along on gossamer strings. (For a fantastic Latin version of this song, check out Poncho Sanchez's 'Afro-Cuban Fantasy' CD.)
There are really two pieces on this volume that steal the thunder from every other track. Everyone who hears this CD raves for days about the John Buzon Trio's spectacular "Caravan." For all the thousands, possibly millions, of versions of this song, you will NEVER hear a better one than this. It pops and slinks and chugs along to a fiercely percolating Latin stripper beat, with the organ taking the bridge and going absolutely insane, much to the listener's delight. It really puts a smile on your face! By the time it's near the end, it's swinging harder than a Louis Prima jam, and you can't wait to hear it again. Fun, silly, sidesplitting, cheesy, and addictive! A must-hear--over and over! The other song that dominates the disc is the strong, seductive organ/piano masterpiece, "The Beast." Words can't properly describe this one, but organist Milt Buckner really outdoes himself on this lounge work of art. These two tracks alone are worth the price of admission. This CD will put anyone under its spell, and is a fine addition to any lounge lizard's library!

The very best ULTRA-LOUNGE recording of them all 7 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I recently discovered "Lounge" music, and have purchased many CDs of this type in the past year. Of these, the "Ultra-Lounge" series seems to be the most consistently enjoyable, and of the "Ultra-Lounge" series, this one is, I feel, the very best. You get saucy, perky, colorful versions of lounge classics such as "Harlem Nocturne," "Night Train," and "Fever." The most enjoyable track of all--especially if you are familiar with the Bettie Page striptease loops from the '50s--is a riveting and sexy version of the ubiquitous "Caravan." (I have about 15 different versions of this song, and the one on this CD is my favorite.) All in all, this is Lounge music at its brashest and brassiest. P.S.: You don't have to be a bachelor to enjoy it.

Couldn't imagine a better cd to go with a stiff martini 19 Feb. 2000
By Holden Westland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There was a period in time, well before mine, where the partially misplaced egocentric moralities of today were replaced with a good stiff drink and a beautiful woman. This cd represents one of Ultra Lounge's best compilations that if you happen upon a night of wanten low morality (as per today's confused standards) and find the mischievous woman of your dreams than you both can crank up the tunes, let down your guards and settle in for a night of pure unadulterated fun - swingin', swanky retro style! This cd oozes the lust (and testosterone) that runs through our veins so therefore, it's one of the best things to ever happen to womankind!

Swingin' and Sexy! 13 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When one considers the low-hemline moral order of 50's middle America, 'Bachelor Pad Royale' remaps to somewhere short of the 'Basic Instinct' Director's Cut. Using mostly oblique references to the big nasty, (the biggest exception being Line Rinaud's indelicately titled 'Sexe') this compilation fuses the unbridled erotic energy that one would today attribute to Lords of Acid with the brazen, flirty, mascara'd, come-hither, cigarette-manhandling hussies of yesteryear. Combined with the next two volumes in the UL collection, 'Wild, Cool and Swingin' and 'Rhapsodesia', the UL masters have filled your three-disc carousel (on randomize, of course) for a night of unbridled passion.

Lounge Gold 29 Mar. 2002
By Mr. Continental - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection is almost too cool for the average.
A collection so perfectly paced it leaks retro-cool.
From travelin' music of "Route 66 theme" to the cold rainy Sunday morning sounds of "Black Coffee" this is a must have for the Atomic Lounge cat.
