My parents had an LP record that they played often and we all loved, but none of us can remember its name now.
1) It was instrumental
2) The cover had an octopus drumming
3) The title was "Dr. something's something band." (Where "something" is of course a placeholder).
4) This was around 1972-1975. We then moved to another country and I never heard that record again.
5) It was bought in India, but it definitely had a Western aspect to it (American or British), I mean the cover art, style of music, etc. I doubt very much it was produced in India.
I find it hard to describe the style of music but it was sort of like an upbeat Muzak with a pop/rock flavor. Easy listening but more peppy. Thanks!
