LP Artwork: A Touch of Tobasco
Recorded over two sessions in the summer of 1959, this is a lively recording by Rosemary Clooney with Perez Prado and his Orchestra.
It is rumoured that Ms Clooney needed some coaching from her Puerto Rican husband - actor Jose Ferrer - on some of pronunciations.
Overall it's great fun. And with a great title, and great vintage cover artwork!
