Percussive Pineapples - Lani Royal

Beyond The Sea
The Sound Of Hawaii
Percussive Pineapples
Producer: Michael Kapp
Lani Royal With The Diamond Head Band
Medallion MS-7516

Budget gatefold designed to steal a slice of the Command label "percussion" pie. No arranger or musician is mentioned in the massive amount of copy. Rehashed Command sound featuring horn bridges on most tracks. The bridge works for me in the sample above, but felt "out-of-place" and "dated" (for the time) on other tracks.
