Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Eddie Gorodetsky.
Cuban-born Perez Prado was one of the main popularizers of Latin music in the postwar U.S.: his mambo instrumentals formed part of the soundtrack to the country's 1950s prosperity. Nowadays regarded as a kitsch delight, tunes like "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White," "Mambo No. 5," and "Patricia" once featured heavily in the pop charts in both America and Europe, and were also included in contemporary movie soundtracks like Federico Fellini's LA DOLCE VITA. This best-of gathers many of Prado's most popular pieces, including "Anna (El Negro Zumbon)" and a kitschy reworking of SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS' "Heigh-Ho," in a homage to Latin big band pop.
