Description by OLDIES.com:

Ray Conniff was an imaginative arranger at Columbia Records who provided artists like Johnny Mathis and Johnny Ray with some of their loveliest tracks. The first album on this disc highlights swinging dance tunes like "Just Boppin'", "Walkin' The Bop", and "Honky-Tonk Rock-Around"; the second brings the Mexico City choir together with Conniff for up-tempo Spanish-language versions of the popular hits of the day.

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: DANCE THE BOP (1957)/EN ESPANOL (1960).
Includes original release liner notes.
The only thing these mismatched albums have in common is the exclamation points in their titles. Dance the Bop! is Ray Conniff's "rock & roll" album from 1957, and it is unique among his many LPs in that he wrote or co-wrote every song. The album really does rock in places, and when the chorus joins in on numbers like "Play a Guitar Solo," the results are downright surreal. This is the most collectable of Conniff's albums and a welcome reissue. Conniff went to Mexico to make En Espa¤ol!, which features Spanish-language versions of songs he recorded in English on earlier albums, including his hit "Invisible Tears." It's an interesting exercise but a peculiar counterpart to Dance the Bop! ~ Greg Adams
