Release Date:12/09/2016;Notes:Vinilisssimo present the first vinyl reissue of The Mark Wirtz Orchestra And Chorus's Latin A Go-Go, originally released in 1966. Mark Wirtz's most famous output was recorded during the mid/late '60s when he was working as an in-house producer for EMI at Abbey Road. His Mood Mosaic LP (1967) and the unfinished concept album A Teenage Opera (a single off this LP, "Grocer Jack", was actually released in 1967) provided Wirtz with an iconic status among easy listening collectors. However, his lesser known 1966 album Latin A Go-Go is the one to have if you aim to hit the dancefloor. The title of this album may not be very original but it perfectly describes the music inside. Think of wild cocktail parties in sunny California in the mid-60s, cosmopolitan hotel lounges in Copacabana or the hippest clubs in swinging London and you'll get a picture of what the perfect scenario for playing this LP looks like. However, it seems that only a few people needed this vibe in their average lives when the record was originally released in the UK, Netherlands and Spain (found under different titles and cover art) and copies have vanished over the years. 50 years after it's release, Vinilisssimo reissues this easy listening/Latin masterpiece which includes just about every classic hit you could expect: "Watermelon Man", "Comin' Home, Baby", "Yeh, Yeh". It also features the likes of Barbara Moore, from the legendary library music album Vocal Shades And Tones (1972), on chorus vocals, Jim Sullivan (Lord Sitar) on guitar and the prolific session player, Vic Flick. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.;Track List:1. Watermelon Man;2. More;3. Comin' Home Baby;4. Sunday Night;5. Riviera Carnival;6. Beyond the Horizon;7. Tennessee Waltz;8. Adventure;9. Yeh Yeh;10. Don't Do It Baby;11. Yesterday's Laughter Today's Tears;12. I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
