Last night I dreamed that I found two more Sauter-Finegan albums on RCA  that were not in the discography.  I can't remember the names of the albums, but I remember the cover art for one of them.

I actually DID find this one:

The arrangements are totally inappropriate for the Ames Brothers, which makes for some gloriously WFT?!?!?!?! moments.

Isn't it amazing that you keep coming across records you'd never seen or heard of before?

Esquivel also had the misfortune of working with the Ames Brothers.

True story:  Back in the day, my Dad was offered a gig to do vocal arrangements for the Ames Brothers, before they'd hit it big.  He declined, saying that he didn't know how to arrange for four guys with the same vocal range!

My dad was a big Ames Brothers fan for some reason...I think it was the bass voice always going babuhbubbuhbuh, seems that got his ear. He had this one record where they sang songs of other famous quartets or something like that. I still have it for sentimental reasons. That one was Hugo Winterhalter, and it memory serves (and it's gonna have to), there was not the perverse sense of Bill Finnegan mocking the Ames Brothers for being the Ames Brothers and RCA for paying him for these charts that's on this one.

Yeah, here that one is:

My Dad was big on the Pied Pipers, the Hi-Los, and the Double Six of Paris.

I finally got a new cartridge for my turntable, so our Bachelor's Guide to Sauter-Finegan will resume soon.

It is important to note that I am still in rum cocktail season, meaning that I spin mostly wild Afro-Cuban drum records and exotica.  I transition from rum to Old Fashioneds sometime after Labor Day, so I will resume the Bachelor's Guide at that time.

It is crucial that music enhance one's choice of cocktails, and Sauter-Finegan generally doesn't work during rum season, unless it is "Eddie and the Witch Doctor," "10,000 Years BC," "Rain," or "Moonlight on the Ganges."
