Don Ralke - Bongo Madness (1957)
Here's a nice album from Don Ralke (I try not to put up really terrible albums, if I can help it - though that may change at any minute!). Looking at the cover and the track list, you can probably tell what to expect. Just a thought; do you think the woman on the cover is sneaking up on him so she can steal his bongo drum? Maybe that's why he's crouching and looking to his side.
The cover looks familiar like I've seen it on somebody else's blog, but I did a blog search and it didn't come up. But if somebody else has put it up, my apologies. In any case, enjoy, but try not to go too bongo mad!

Update: 'Blog-A-Roonie' & 'Penthouse Safari' have pointed out that this album has bad sound as if it has been noise-reduced to the point of being unlistenable. Unfortunately, this is the only copy I have. I should've pointed out before that this isn't my rip, so there's not much I can do about the sound.
If I remember right, I got it off a site that's been gone for 2 or 3 years now, so that's why I didn't bother to credit it. I guess that was back in the good old days when people were glad to rip anything from vinyl and weren't as concerned with sound quality. I listened to it briefly before I posted it and didn't notice the less-than-stellar sound, but I think it's just that my expectations are low. If you're expecting CD quality, it does have bad sound. If you're not paying much attention like I was, you might think it's okay. I like good sound quality, but I listen to everything from old cassettes to 78's (not mine, but other people's), so less-than-perfect sound doesn't tend to bother me.
I'm debating whether to take the post down. Anybody else think it's bad enough to remove? Or should I leave it up in case anybody wants it regardless of the sound? Let me know. Thanks!
Too much N/R gives artifacts that sound like echo and worse.
Any chance that it could be done again with no N/R?
Sorry but I gotta agree with the last comment , great album but please please please could we have this one again at better bit rate and no NReduction its almost unlistenable and Ive been after this one forever :)
I gave the album a cursory listen before I posted it to remind me of what it sounded like, but I don't remember it sounding bad. I'll have to listen to it again more closely. Sorry about the poor quality!
Also, sorry, but that's the only version I have. Like I said, I'll take another listen and if it sounds that bad, maybe I'll take the post down.
Again, sorry about the sound quality! Maybe my ears are shot from all the music! I'll listen to it again.
And I love the De Sica & Mandel shares you've got over at the Safari right now (along with everything else you've posted, by the way). I hope I can catch up on my downloading so I can get them (and I've got to check to see if I have them already too!)
Every time I turn around, you've got some great new share over there! I can't keep up. The blogosphere is filled with so much great music!!
And in case I haven't already mentioned it, I love the look of your blog too. You know, I should probably make these comments over at your blog, but for some reason, I get lazy about it. I can't even remember the last time I commented over there!
Well, anybody else reading this, go over to Penthouse Safari now(link in the link list)!
So glad to see you visiting!! Still miss your blog!
Originally, I was thinking of posting the Gershwin album, but after doing a blog search, I realized Planet Xtabay already posted it, so I put up this one instead. Actually, I like the Gershwin one better, and now after the whole sound quality thing, I wish I had posted that one! :))
I agree that we all would have accepted this only a few years ago, but with CDs and digital audio via the net, we are truly spoilt!
I know exactly what you mean. Yes, it sometimes seems like we are spoiled by the quality and quantity of all the great music available now and it's probably raised the bar on our expectations, but as long as we're enjoying the music, I guess it all amounts to the same thing.
Well, thanks for responding to my responses! :))

But, think on this, what if you compοsed а сatchіеr title?
I am not sayіng уour informatiοn isn't solid., but what if you added a headline that grabbed people's аttentіon?
I mean "Don Ralke - Bongo Madness (1957)" is kinda boring.
You shoulԁ glanсe at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write article titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything've got to ѕау.
