Let's Mambo - Sonny Burke

Bara Au Rhum
Let's Mambo
Sonny Burke And His Orchestra
Decca Records DL 8090

From March 12, 1955 Billboard Magazine: The market is crowed with mambo packages right now, but this LP should enjoy a brisk sale on the strength of its cover alone; it features a torrid photo of a nude torso, veiled only in strategic shadows. Bruke's first Mambo LP did well, and this package should pull its full share of sales. The band leader contributes an excellent blend and a good dance beat to 12 instrumentals of the oldie Pick Yourself Up, to his own Phfftt Mambo.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
