Let's Dance The Cha-Cha-Cha - Ruben Leon And His Orchestra

TOPS Mayfair 963S & Hi Fi Tops L1693

For a budget label product this is a fine small combo Latin set featuring four well crafted extended play medleys, two per side.

The reverse jacket on my copy features a black overprint at the bottom meant to obscure a bit of original copy. TOPS was going to press the entire issue on yellow vinyl but decided, at some point, to do part of the pressing on a black disc, but continue to use up the remaining stock of original jackets.

Here is the original copy: TOPS "GOLDEN SOUND" pure gold vinyl stereophonic records are the finest recordings and the greatest value available in the record world today. All original TOPS STEREOPHONIC recordings are recorded on dual track magnetic Ampex tape recorders operating at fifteen inches per second. The tapes are then carefully mastered by a Westrex 45 x 45 feedback cutter and heated stylus on a Scully variable pitch lathe to insure the very finest high quality reproduction in transfering the ultimate in sound from the tape to the vinyl. A frequency response is produced of 20 to 20,000 cycles per second. This system is universally acclaimed by recording engineers as the best in stereophonic record production. TOPS has selected pure golden vinyl for its record production as this is the purest recording material and offers vibrant sound in its truest form.
