I have always held Xavier Cugat in great affection. I recall seeing him lighten up many a black & white musical. Here you have the full colour version of Xavier Cugat and in brilliant full stereo sound. The restoration/ transfer of these LPs make you question their age. Can these really date back to the early 1960s. You cannot get better than Sepia who month after month release exciting and much sought after albums with bonus tracks as well. Excellent sound and great value.

Some of you may remember the Guinness advert using Guaglione by Perez Prado as a theme music. That ad prompted the re-release of Prado's albums and I was hoping another high profile ad would do likewise for Cugat. Not to be, but at last a c.d. is now available.

I was ten years old when I first heard the Viva Cugat album; my uncle had just acquired a stereophonic radiogram and was building a collection of 'High Fidelity' stereo recordings. I must have had a previous life with Latin American influence because from the first play I couldn't stop listening to this album. So much so that after "playing it to death" my uncle gave it to me. The vinyl didn't stand the test of time and continuous play and I'd been looking in vain for a c.d. replacement; until now. Nostalgia aside, this really is a great Cugat collection.

That champion provider of Latin American music, Xavier Cugat (1900-1990), is well-represented by this two-album stereo collection which was his introduction to the spacious world of multi-channel recordings introduced at the end of the Fifties with his orchestra ideally suited to such sound innovation. VIVA CUGAT! recorded in 1961, perfectly captures the exotic JUNGLE CONCERTO, PERFIDIA, SIBONEY and POINCIANA; describes the Latin delights of ANNA and MARIA ELENA whilst that location known as THE ISLE OF CAPRI is remarkably inviting.

THE BEST OF CUGAT recorded the very same year, sounds even better with explosive ear-catching instrumental and choral effects in the line-up which hurls itself towards TABOO, AMAPOLA, EL CUMBANCHERO and MISIRLOU whilst straying further a field for the classic TEA FOR TWO amongst a dozen updates finely orchestrated to catch the ear with sheer imaginative power. Six bonus tracks from 1962 allow the Latin beat to work on big-band classics; amongst them CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO and IN THE MOOD.

Sepia’s great remastering ensures these tracks sound better than they ever did on their original vinyl outing. Quite the finest Latin orchestral collection I can recall. Can’t say better than that!
