South American Getaway

Category:

This CD is cleverly named for the Burt Bacharach piece from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (which was memorably performed in the film by the Swingle Singers).  It sounds great in this version for 12 cellos.  The disc also includes a wide range of music by South American composers, with Villa's BB#1 and #5 in standout performances.

See this post in The Villa-Lobos Magazine

There's a Telefunken "Club Edition, v.1" version of this recording of BB#1 with different couplings:
