this is a great cd, thoroughly recommended, not least for the useful cocktail recipes it incorporates. great latin flavour, fantastic bongos, it's perfect for recreating that crazy 1950s lounge atmosphere right there in the safety of your own home... guaranteed to inject post-modern and vaguely ironical wit into even the most staid of social gatherings... well, probably. perfect for young and old alike, my five-year old son loves it, the senile old man next door bangs his stick on the wall to it, and i jiggle around the room to it only wishing afterwards that i'd listened to my gran and put up net curtains. i also own 'mondo exotica' which i'd also recommend, and have heard a few of the other ultra-lounge cds, but 'bongoland' is the best i've heard.
