It only changed my life, that's all.

http://www.ultralounge.com/

Have been listening to -- and collecting -- these CDs for years. Just recently acquired "Cha Cha de Amor" and "Bachelor Pad Royale" -- will soon have a complete collection to hand down to my son.

I see on their website that there's a Cole Porter Ultra Lounge CD out now -- perhaps in honor of the new movie? It will soon be the next notch on my gun belt, rest assured.

I was on a mission last summer to get the first 18 Ultra Lounge CD's and I did so rather inexpensively using Amazon auctions! I love them all - some more others but they are always fun to listen to!

I'm been listening to those Cds for a few years now. I love the hidden extras, like the how to play a bongo instructional on the "Tiki Sampler". There are a couple great extras on the Christmas Cds too. Old toys for tots radio commercial with Nat King Cole and Peggy Lee. Oh yeah, and the music is good too; Just picked up the Vegas Sampler with the working roulette table cover last week. I never knew that was Wayne Newton singing “Danke Schoen”, always thought that was a woman. Ferris Buller, Ferris Buller.

These CDs got me into Exotica. From there I went out to get a bunch of Denny Martin, Les Baxter, and Yma Sumac, etc.

Ooh, well I got the first one , 'Mondo Exotica' , which certainly does the job I asked of it. (Ie - a bunch of exotica skillfully gathered together on CD form for party purposes, etc)

I'm not so sure about spending wads of cash on the rest of the collection though, as it's 1000% more fun searching out the original vinyl and making up your own compilations.

Yeah, the Mondo Exotica CD kicked things off for me too. Then the sampler and pretty soon any Ultra Lounge CD I could lay my hands on. Right now Bachelor Pad Royale is getting a lot of play. I pop it into my car's CD player and the 1st track: Theme From Route 66, makes me feel like I'm cruisin' down a long open hiway in a '62 Corvette convertable with nowhere to go and plenty of time to get there (even though I'm really on my way to work).

"Theme From Route 66" makes me think I'm an advertising exec dreaming up a campaign for the introduction of the first flying car.

Think of it next time you hear the tune. A flaming red flying car with a hot babe behind the wheel, scarf whipping in the wind as she zooms high over the "old" Rte 66 .... old time cowboys rear back on their horses and wave their hats ... the babe finally lands at a really cool Dude Ranch ....

Does she pick up a seductive hitchhiker who looks alot like Uma Thurman with 4 inch thumbs and the Dude ranch is called the Rubber Rose Ranch and it's run by lesbian cowgirls who...Naahh, that would be ridiculous.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack this thread off to another dimension. It's all Satan's Sin's fault for gettin' me wound up. Anyway, I was looking through my Ultra Lounge collection and found to my dismay that I only have about half of their catalogue. Some of the stuff I think I could slide on like the Christmas CD's, TV Time and Mondo Hollywood but I don't know how I let Vegas Baby, Space Capades and Organs in Orbit get by me. Speaking of Organs in Orbit...where's the Jimmy Smith?!? Not lounge enough I guess.
