Spanish Flea Party Playlist

Today, we celebrate another monumental addition to Rhapsody: the original version of Spanish Flea. It turns out the whole album "Going Places" is fantastic, and this version of Walk, Don't Run in particular kicked this ass for a man. In another bit of bizarre trivia to this ordinary citizen, Herb Alpert is the "A" in "A&M Records." Go figure.

Apparently Spanish Flea was written by marimba man Julius Wechter, who also played with an outfit called the Baja Marimba Band. Let's see about getting some of their music into the machine there, Rhapsodists.

Lastly, to turn on the lights and drive everyone out of the party I've invited the incomparable flugelhorn of Chuck Mangione.

Happy Friday to one and all.
