Sensational Guitars Of Dan And Dale

This usual "Dan and Dale" was a project that set out to appeal to a more mainstream audience. However, the set goes a step beyond what you might expect from a period mood LP to feature an unique and dreamy blend instrumental covers.

Sun Ra is noted to have been a member of the session group, however I can not confirm any member who might have been a part of the band.

Other Dan & Dale albums you might enjoy: Theme From Hawaii, Somewhere My Love and The Nearness Of You.


  1. I'm new to your blog and also fairly new to vinyl hunting. It seems I'm out looking for the same types of albums you post, which is what led me to UITAA. I wanted to let you know how much I really enjoy your blog, so my sincere thanks for sharing. BTW, I recently picked up my first Dan & Dale lp, a selection of their "Mancini favorites."

    1. Thank you for your kind words! I did not know that D&D made a Mancini covers album. I'll be looking for a copy! I bet there are interesting tracks on that LP. Mark


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
