Provocative Percussion

Song Of India
Provocative Percussion
Command Records RS 806 SD
Produced And Originated By Enoch Light
1959

Command recordings are always a treat for the ear. Enoch Light engineering is always amazing. Especially if you can play a clean copy. The sound will rock you.

This is an early percussion entry and features that signature Command "ping-pong" and "light pop" sound. But the sound favors light pop trends of the 50s over the 60s excess. Light can be credited for most of those pop trends including cover design which his label is known for.

Song Of India is the standout tune!
