Bang Bang / If You Go Away
Herb Bernstein - Herb Bernstein's New Crusade - 196? - Metromedia
Truly wacked-out LP from former basketball pro turned MGM(?) musical arranger/composer/producer. Freaky instrumentation - in part - includes three flamenco guitarists, four drummers (with at least two on full kits), flutes, and tuba & bass trombone as the lead instruments! Things do not stop there but the rest is too much of headscratcher to explain.
