Noro Morales Cha Cha Cha's

Pagan Love Song

Design DCF 1008
1960

Morales passed away at the age of 53 in 1964 of the effects of chronic diabetes.

The orchestration is dated for the period and overshadows Morales keyboard work. However, there are a few cool tracks that save the record. Don't Be That Way and Darktown Strutters Ball are very nice covers and side two kicks off with a great cover of Pagan Love Song featuring a robotic rhythm line.
