The Ray Charles Singers - Songs For Latin Lovers (1965)

Here's another of the treasures I found in the HPB bargain bin, and it was the album artwork that prompted me to buy it. Of course, after listening to it, I loved it! I like this type of music - very smooth, melodic, and rhythmic. I am transported back to the mid-1960s when I listen to this - love it! This is a great album to play at your next cocktail party. And, it's the perfect album to listen to on a lazy Sunday afternoon such as today!

Do you know if this is some kind of theme in the 1960s? I'm sure Doris Day has a similarly titled album in which she sings "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps."

Good morning, Esther! I am a country preacher / public school teacher, and I love your site! One of the subjects that I teach is high school Latin I. Thanks for posting this album. I plan on playing "Amo, Amas, Amamus" for my Latin class to help explain the conjugation of the present tense of verbs!

I greatly appreciate your website, and visit it every weekday. Thanks for all you do!
