The tide turns slightly toward the serious on this album, but that did nothing to lessen the TJB's popularity: this album remained at #1 on the Billboard Album chart for nine weeks, the longest of any TJB album. The incredibly fluid arrangement of the title track is a standout, as are "Memories of Madrid", "Five Minutes More", "The Magic Trumpet", and the ever-popular "So Whats' New?". What's especially notable about this album is that there seems to be a few different versions of this album floating around. The mono version seems to be a constant. One stereo version is actually a stereo mix of the mono album. A second stereo version has a few notable differences to it, and this version would be the one that ended up on the CD version of this album. The second stereo version has, among other things, a missing trombone lead-in part in "Brasilia," and the tune "Plucky" not only has a second marimba part dubbed in, there's a section in the middle of the song where it pauses, and a small "strip tease" segment is inserted. (And yet the track timing on the album still reflects the non-strip-tease version.) Others report that one version of "What Now My Love" seems more echo-ey or distant than the other.
