Ping Pong Percussion - Chuck Sagle And His Orchestra

The Sheik Of Araby
Ping Pong Percussion
Chuck Sagle And His Orchestra
Epic BN 568
1960

This is a nice percussion album that was released early during the ping pong percussion trend. The album is a gatefold patterned after album designs from the Command label (who started the trend in the late 50s early 60s).

The June 13, 1960 Billboard liked this released, promoting it in their "Very Strong Sales Potential" column.  However, I think the song mix seems odd. Meaning there are a number of Dixie Land Jazz influenced tracks which don't seem to fit the track list.

The engineering is excellent.
