You'll have to find Claudine elsewhere... 🤣 (I own a single CD's worth, a compilation, just for one track.) But since there are digital releases of all the albums, they should all be available on YouTube.

I decided that Summer Samba was my favorite choice from Fowl Play. I seemed to enjoy that selection more than the others. I have heard that song on the radio but by another artist. I do not know who it was as the AM station did not identify who it was and they did not have a playlist on their website.

Many artists have done "Summer Samba" like Astrud Gilberto, Wanda Sa, Walter Wanderley...

Harry,
The version I heard was very similar to BMB but maybe it was a slightly different mix of their record or someone that used BMB's style to record another version.

Yeah, there were lots of instrumental versions too, by various orchestras like a Percy Faith or Bert Kaempfert, or a Mantovani or the like. The melody lends itself to marimba-like instruments.

I believe Walter Wanderley's version was the hit version of the tune. And it had many cover versions after that point, including Wanderley redoing it with Astrud Gilberto.
