about

Charles Blackwell's uptempo dance floor targeted rendition of 'Taboo' is a swinging orchestral piece with a very big sound indeed. The song was originally recorded in the '30s by the Lecuona Cuban Boys, and 'Tabu' or 'Taboo' quickly became a staple of exotic jazz and more in the years that followed.

Given possibly a thousand interpretations, on the flip we pick another cool version of the song. This time heavy on the drums and bongos, with the infamous melody played out on a distant organ with accompanying horn stabs. Lifted from an uncredited acetate, this appears on vinyl for the first time ever!
