Command : Spanish Guitar - Tony Motolla and his Orchestra

I got this album by chance. In the summer of 2009 I bought a few command albums on a flea market. Among them was Bongo's/ Flutes/ Guitars. I already had this album, but that was the European version (different coverart) so I bought it anyway. When I came home I discovered that the record inside was Spanish Guitar. So now I have a command record without a sleeve and a command sleeve without a record...
The coverart I added was found on the web. It's not a very good quality, and it's only front and back. If anybody can provide the coverart of this album in high-res (front, back, inside) I will be eternally grateful.

There are some cracks and jumps in this one. Especially track 02 Frenesi.
Sorry bout that.

Side 1
01 Beguine Tampico
02 Frenesi
03 Block Party in Barcelona
04 España Cañi

06 Lady of Spain

Side 2
01 Tico-Tico
02 Guitar Español
03 Granada
04 Dance of the Spanish Onion

Dynamic Mood Music in Sound Effect

So here is my mystery record. I know nothing about the Music Sound Orchestra, but it is a very good record. I guess it is some kind of 'demonstration record' for toshiba equipment. If you know more about this one, please let me know.
The songs are connected with various 'sound effects', so when 'sitting on the dock of the bay' starts, you can hear the seagulls crying and the water lapping against the docks.
Nice. Really 'moody'.
I've cut the tracks but didn't add 'silence' so when you burn the tracks without pauses you'll get the full effect.

I'm sorry about the quality of the coverart. When I get myself a flatbedscanner I promise to improve the quality.

There's a little 'jump' in 'Fly me to the moon'.

Enjoy !
