Harmonica & Percussion - Boris Draper

Chiri Biri Bin
Harmonica & Percussion
Boris Draper
Coronet Records
CX-137

The title and cover art on this budget project don't do much to sell this space age set. The percussion, as you might expect if you listened to a few of these budget "ping-pong" LPs, is a bit "tacked-on". With that said, the "percussion" manages to blend into the body of the songs which generally play through as a nice lounge set with occasional surprisingly cool jazz passages (as heard in the example above).

Old Devil Moon
Wish You Were Here
Cheyenne
Chiri Biri Bin (this is now the title is spelled on the back cover)
Nellie Blye
La Paloma
