Hawaiian Holiday - Dick Contino

Quite Village
Hawaiian Holiday
Dick Contino
Mercury Records MG 20753

This is a very good light space age pop album released to take advantage of period exotic music trends. Apparently David Carroll, Mercury Recording Director, arranged the songs. Carroll was an excellent arranger who recorded a number of excellent space age albums. Check out Percussion In Hi-Fi.

For another Contino sample (and great cover art) check out: An Accordion In Paris.
