Description by OLDIES.com:
In a career that spanned decades, Andre Kostelanetz sold over fifty-two million albums. He was a popular guest conductor with many symphonies and a musical adventurer, willing to work in any musical style. On these two albums, we find Kostenanetz in a tropical mood - among the lush, exotic tunes featured here are "Adios", "Flamingo", and "Lotus Land".
2 LPs on 1 CD: CARNIVAL TROPICANA (1948)/LURE OF THE TROPICS (1954).
Originally released on Columbia.
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Andre Kostelanetz LPs: Carnival Tropicana and Lure of the Tropics. Originally issued in the early 50s, each of the 18 tracks has a continuity dominated by easy listening versions of "Malaguena," "Frenesi," "The Moon of Manakoora," and "La Cumparsita." ~ Al Campbell
