Perez Prado: Sexomania
From El Fabuloso (Orfeon/Dimsa, 1976)
Probably should have included this along with my last Prado-related post given that both albums explore the artist’s ’70s stylings. El Fabuloso seems in line with a lot of those titles – nothing mindblowing but all…intriguing in their own way.
“Sexomania” is a funky, uptempo mambo with some good screams and breaks thrown in but personally, I’m all about “Black Magnolia.” It sounds as if Prado was listening to a lot of Jr. Walker and decided to try his hand at a song in the vein of “Cleo’s Mood” or “Cleo’s Back.” Rrrrrraaahh!
