Perez Prado - Pops And Prado (1959)
And here it is, last week´s poll-winner. Good choice, my guests! Latin beat goes Space-Age-Pop. This is the first album that he added a Conn and a Hammond organ to his music, I guess. On most tracks only one of these electric organs is used, but on "Carolina In The Morning", "You're Driving Me Crazy!", "Paper Doll" and "If You Knew Susie", both are used. What a sound! This is Latin rhythm with a touch of North American pop, plus his trademark-shout "Ugh!" on many tracks. Please enjoy this fine piece of music.
