Another Crazy Cocktail Party is a collection of swinging easy listening and pop from the mid-'60s, designed to appeal to the retro-lounge lizards of Generation X. None of the songs on the collection were actual hits, but the sound of the record, with its jive brass and Latin rhythms, is kitschy and wacky enough for '90s swingers. Some of the music is strong, and the rare David Bowie composition "Pancho" is certainly of interest to collectors, but for the most part, Another Crazy Cocktail Party is a little bland and predictable and only of interest to aficionados of this style.
