Much better than a Mariachi band

Hulda

“At The Summit”
1968, Summit Records

From the Back Cover:

“Certainly this album could have been called ‘The Many Moods of Hulda,’ for here she has recreated the sounds that are heard live nightly at the Summit. When first we discussed making an album the greatest problem was how to get the feeling of Hulda’s moods, personality, and voice quality on record. Could we duplicate her ability to tell a story of joy or sorrow the way she does nightly at the club?  After long hours of recording these songs…, we believe it is all here under this cover photograph taken one evening as Hulda sang in the Fire Room of the luxurious Summit Club in Downtown Houston.”

Ain’t no party like a Mountain Shadows party

Dick & Libby Halleman

“Let’s Go Dancing… at Del Webb’s Mountain Shadows”
Summit #189

Closed.

From the Back Cover:

“After a pleasant evening of dancing to Dick & Libby Halleman at Del Webb’s Mountain Shadows in Scottsdale, Arizona, Lawrence Welk had this to say: I had the pleasure of hearing Dick and Libby when I was in Phoenix last week and I want to congratulate you on this wonderful little band. It is truly the best little dance band I have heard in many years. If we can come up with more bands like this, I think the music and dance business could be brought back.”

Glass-shattering

Totie Fields

“Live”
Mainstream S/6123

From the Back Cover:

“Totie Fields is ready as she shyly shouts those two little words behind the curtain of the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. From the moment she sets foot onto the stage the magic that is Totie Fields begins. Her ability to laugh at herself has made her a fantastically successful entertainer.”

If I could go to any place and time, it would be to this show

Rodney Arias (with the Paradise Seranaders)
“Live!”
Silvercloud #1006
1979

“After the Lovin’ (intro)”:

After the Lovin’ (intro)

From the Back Cover:

Rodney Arias deserves to be heard. A live recording is the quickest and most expedient method. It was impractical to bring all the necessary equipment to the Outrigger East Hotel, so the producers decided to reverse the procedure. They transported the club to the studio — chairs, tables, ash-trays, a mini-bar, and pupus were laid out.

My Happiest Moments

The Suzi Arden Show

“Live at the Mint Hotel”
Mint #711

Someone has written on the record sleeve, “1977, Aug. 10th. My happiest moments”

“Bill Bailey”:

Bill Bailey

From the Back Cover:

“Suzi Arden! She’s the dynamite entertainment package who jams the Mint Hotel’s Merri Mint Lounge with crowds so big it takes two uniformed security patrolmen just to keep the aisles clear. Suzi Arden is a whole line of Rockettes rolled into one. Those who have seen Miss Arden cavort ‘on stage’ will attest to the fact she’s the hottest lounge attraction on famed Fremont Street here in America’s Entertainment capitol.”
