I grew up listening to Armenian music, and I still enjoy listening to this album. Mike Sarkissian was the Armenian Elvis. Or so I’m told. I dig the Gene Shalit, blue polyester look. If there isn’t a Sacha Baron Cohen biopic in the works, there should be. From the liner notes:
“Armenian Night At The International Hotel In Las Vegas,” and that’s what it was. A real Armenian “Kef” time at KIRK KERKORIAN’S Palatial Palace, a party that was attended by a who’s who of Las Vegas including DANNY THOMAS, ROBERT GOULET, FRANK SINATRA, JR., “MANUEL” and a host of other celebrities.
