The Three Suns "On a Magic Carpet..." (Vinyl) Throwing a cocktail party tonight, Mr. Draper? Well then you'll surely need this record thrown on your hi-fi! Just as the Prado mambo album was a time machine, this one sets the time circuits for the age of Cleaver. I'm not sure how often I'll find it necessary/fun to pull out this record, but when I do it's just fun to consider how much the music we listen to and enjoy has changed. I can't find an exact date for when this was made, but to think that this fell within the decade of Elvis Presley's explosion onto the public quickly things went from this civilized, polished veneer to the sheer pandemonium that would ensue in the coming decades.
