Franck Pourcel - "Dancing In The Sun" (1970)

At times I feel as though Lawrence Welk could come prancing around the corner due to the hokey style of some of these songs. On the other hand, this is a marvelously conducted album by Pourcel and his orchestra. Lounge music suitable for a paradisaical setting, with reflective, classical strides. A momentary romantic escape for a double agent sipping Caribbean bliss. Some of these sections ring out gloriously like the listener is heading a parade. It would not be farfetched to feel the record create a breeze while spinning it.

The happy ol' days.
