chedderchester Posted April 25, 2011 Report Share Posted April 25, 2011 I just ordered this CD off of Ebay and I LOVE it! Has most of his memorable classics, like "Babalu," "Guadalajara," "Cuban Pete," "The Matador," "Similau," (aka the "African Wedding Dance) "Carnival in Rio" - which features LUCY and one of my absolute favorites, "Without You" which can be heard on the "Lucy/Desi a Home Movie." At first, I wasn't wild about "Carnival in Rio" but listening to it again, I like it, especially Lucy's part. She goes "Peter Piper picked a pack of pick-led peppers, a pack of pickled peppers, Peter Piper picked. Did Peter Piper pick a pack of pickled peppers, how many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick" (or something to that effect.) I think they sped up her voice a bit because it sounds too chipmunk-y. I love hearing this CD because it was recorded in 1946-1947, before the I Love Lucy days. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
