Pinto Varez ( real name Francesco Anselmo ) presents a set of cover songs on this Phase 6 Super Stereo release from 1970. The mood is lounge / easy with a healthy dose of Italy meets South America groove. Some of the more recognisable tracks are "In The Summertime", "Tequila". "La Cucaracha" and a fab version of "Come Together".  This record is a little corny at times but "Mahna De Carnival" and "Honey, Rhythm & Butter" show off a more serious, jazzier side. This link is care of Mondo Ribelle.

Jeez, I forgot about this one. It's worth noting that "Varez" issued some of these tracks again on a follow-up called "Uncle Jim - Music on the Rocks."
