The Cabinet of Curiosities Series:
A lounge in the Poconos located just inside a Holiday Inn, 1973. The smoky haze clears to reveal a middle aged couple on a one-foot high stage, prattling on about the weather or Watergate before launching into a serviceable cover of Burt Bacharach's "Do You Know The Way To San Jose?" Tens of thousands of such combos littered restaurants, cruise ships, casinos, lobbies & cocktail bars throughout the '60s and '70s, but far fewer cut a record worth buying from the stage, much less listening to on the home hi-fi.
Gathered here are 14 lounge originals from across the entire easy listening spectrum. A spent matchbook's worth of crooners, bossa nobodies, seafood jazzers and Donca-Matic enthusiasts all in search for their ticket out of a red leather booth hell.

01 Blue Eyed Soul - Ain't No Weight
02 The Do's and the Dont's - No One to Talk My Troubles to
