The Ray Charles Singers – Songs For Latin Lovers


More velvety-smooth vocal latin vibes, from Enoch Light’s Command label, which I get the impression was one of the quintessential labels for stereophonic easy listening in the States, but not as well-known over here and consequently you don’t see too many of them in English bins, even when they’re UK Pye pressings like this one.

The attention to detail is sumptous, with ‘technical data’ and a booklet containing detailed recording notes, including Ray Charles’ own comments about the arrangements.

The inner sleeve also treats us to an advertisement for Pye’s Achoic Box

“…with it’s six powerful speakers facing sideways instead of forwards it produces six feet of stereo separation. These speakers, in conjunction with solid state electronics, allow the Achoic Box to exploit a room’s acoustic potentialities as they have never been exploited before. Here, with all its full bodied richness and astonishing realism, is Stereo in Depth”.
