Latin Lounge: Brasilia Mission/Latin Velvet
by Tony Hatch
Released: Jan 1968
Label: Sanctuary Records Fontana
The album cover offers excellent home decoration tips as Tony Hatch reconfigures swinging '60s hits into Sergio Mendes-style, bossa-lite instrumentals. Very nice, with such swank Hatch originals as "Brasilia Mission" and "Endora" commingling nicely with all the well-established gems of the day including rock hits such as "Light My Fire" and "Norwegian Wood."
