Overview

With its sights set firmly on its target demographic, it was inevitable that this four-volume series would eventually have an entry devoted to lounge music, mostly showcasing tunes of the cocktail and exotica variety. Smokin' Lounge, the final volume in the series...heads right into the easy listening side of the equation, firing off both hits ("Ebb Tide" by Earl Grant, "Shangri-La" by Robert Maxwell, "Hernando's Hideaway" by Enoch Light, "Fly Me To The Moon [Bossa Nova]" by Joe Harnell, and "Picnic Theme" by Morris Stoloff), misses ("Blues In The Night" by the always stiff Enoch Light), and the supremely oddball (ringers like Billy Vaughn's cover of "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White," "Ritual Of The Torch" by Frank Hunter, and the lightweight but fun "Hot Canary" by Florian Zabach). Winner of the "what's this doing on here with the rest of this stuff" award goes to the programming-mistake inclusion of William Shatner's leaden poetry reading of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds."..collectors will want this to complete the set.
