About this album

Grand Award Records Cat # GA 222 SD (1958)

Review by Tony Wilds

A famous album and a smash success, I Want to Be Happy Cha Chas probably can be blamed as much as any Grand Award LP for all the Command records to follow. Actually, I Want to Be Happy Cha Chas is less offensive. The percussion and channel separation is not yet pushed to extremes, and the organ duplicates that of the Prado outfit. (“Patricia” and “Guaglione” are covered.) Latin fans may despise North American tunes that were adapted to the cha cha and cheesily arranged, but it is certainly a classic album of its kind.
