Here's one for All the Teens

I don't know if Les Baxter was hoping that adding "teen" in the album title would put this on the jukebox playlists of soda shops and other teen hangouts, but really it's typical Baxter meandering wankitude of self-indulgent percussion solos--including the first 2 minutes of the promisingly titled "Uncle Tom Tom"--spritely flutes, guitars, and marimbas that sort of vamp until the sound engineer fades out. What can I say, my head was turned by song titles like "ooch-i-Baba" and "ting ting ting".
