Xavier Cugat And His Orchestra Play Covers

Xavier Cugat's records covers but in his own imitable style. "Besame Mucho", "La Cumpasita" and "Perfidia" are favourites but "Brazil" was one of his biggest hits. These hits were also covers for many guitar groups like, THE VENTURES, THE JUMPING JEWELS and THE SHADOWS in the mid 60s.
