    LP sounds like you are listening to an audio track to an old TARZAN serial...Drums and more drums...Lex Baxter was recording for decades plus he wrote some top music for movies and TV shows and still churned out lots of albums over his career...These cuts are pretty heavy for way back in 1957...Heck, let's face it...EVERYTHING sounds better with bongos...
