Cocktails For Two

Louis Martinelli And The Continentals
Cocktails For Two
Crown Records (CST 126) 1959

Billed on the back cover as a music for "Cocktail Hour" (The hour is just after five p.m.). Martinelli plays his accordion on every track which may be enough to drive some to drink more at cocktail hour. I realize this is his record and his instrument… but enough is enough.

The record itself is a rich swirled dark amber. The unusual record along with the great space age cover give the package an exotic look.

The music doesn't live up to the marketing. I think I'll go get a beer.
