Editor's note: there's no thump-dee thump-dee back beat driving this one as there is with Dorothy's Harp. Nope, this is dinner music with a small orchestra and a harp player who chimes in as part of the polite society conversation. I guess that is standard fare for Billy May though. He always promises a rollicking time but his definition of a bash is a little different than say TED NUGENT! If any of you mofos don't want to get a little bit mellow here with Billy May then you can turn around and get the @#*$ outta here!

Sorry to say but there is a big problem with the side 1 mp3; can you redo it and repost please.
The last few bits are jumbled of track 4 for sure. And it sounds like the start of track 5 has been affected.
