Mod-A-Day: Four King Cousins

If you like groovy soft pop of the sixties ala Burt Bacharach, Free Design, and Harper's Bizarre, then you're in for a treat when you drop the needle on the The Four King Cousins one and only, criminally underrated 1968 release. Looking like jet set stewardesses the all girl combo produced by David Axelrod tear up eleven pop standards from the likes of Brian Wilson, Lesley Gore, and Bacharach. The song here "Let's Get Away From It All" was a 1940s pop standard made famous by Sinatra, but even he didn't give it as smooth a groove as the Cousins do.
