Does anyone know the name of any of the cocktail instructional albums put out. They used to play excerpts from one on the very missed XM station cocktail lounge. And the Beastie Boys used a sample on their Check Your Head cd?

Wow, never heard of that. It sounds fun! I do know of one called "How To Speak Hip" which sounds like its in the same vein.

Oh Yeah, I remember hearing some of that on the incredibly strange music vol. 2. Thanks for reminding me. Do you know were there may be a recording online?

I have an album called "On Wine: How to Select and Serve," Columbia Special Products CSP 151, probably late 60s/early 70s judging from the photo and layout. Side 1 is instructional, with a couple who sound like they've just arrived on earth asking a "wine expert" everything short of how to tie their shoes. Side 2 is run of the mill light classics. Curiously, the cover mentions "Vol. 1" in tiny print; no idea if subsequent volumes actually followed or not.

That Beasties sample *may* have come from this LP, but I can't confirm it unless I do a side by side comparison.

Thank you
