Two instrumentals that I'm not at all familiar with, though I am familiar with the artists from SNL and Barenaked Ladies fame, respectively! I would also like to point out that this means that 1961 started with nearly two solid months of instrumental #1's!
I enjoyed both of these, and i bet you will too!
Lawrence Welk - Calcutta (2/13/61-2/27/61)
Bert Kaempfert - Wonderland by Night (1/9/61-1/30/61)
