Bread, Love and Cha Cha ChaXavier Cugat and His Orchestra
Columbia CL 1016
This album can be found on a combo CD with Cugat Calvalcade so I will not be posting a sample.
I just love the cover, Cugat with his ever present hot red head. What is that thing he is holding on to? Oh... that's a cigar silly... wait... no... it is a loaf bread. And the hot red head? Why, that's Cugat's fourth wife, Abbe Lane!
Cugat's albums are always fine Latin pop efforts. This album is only a Cha Cha album in name, there are a few calypso tracks on this album, Very, Very Satisfied and The Banana Boat Song and several mambo tracks.
Whatever Lola Wants is one of the better space age tracks featuring some electric guitar passages.
