Paradise Isle - Eddy Howard

From the back cover: For years, Eddy Howard has been American's favorite maestro of the gentle, danceable beat. Always at his ballroom appearances, a high spot attraction has been the gentle vocal gems offered by the maestro in a distinctive style of intimacy, friendliness and understanding.

This is one nice laid back and so smooooth island set topped off by the album's title track, Paradise Isle. Slow songs are difficult song to sell, but Howard slows this slowest of slow tunes down to a crawl and I'm buying. I also bought myself this terrific glossy Mercury cover art.
