Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style!

New Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle!

Les BaxterCaribbean Moonlight ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Not as all-out exotic as some of Les' earlier Capitol albums, but still pretty darn great! The theme here is Carribean exotic, and the rhythms have a little bit more of Cuba and Haiti than they do of primitive Borneo. Les handles them nicely, as always, and contributes some wonderful arrangements ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD!

Les BaxterJungle Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $34.99
Savage stuff! This is one of Les Baxter's greatest albums ever – and it's right on a par with African Jazz, which uses a similar formula: Plas Johnson's up front playing gutsy tenor, and Les is behind, working a large group of exotica players into a tribal frenzy of mellow grooves. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterPorts Of Pleasure ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good- ... $6.99
A dreamy exploration of south sea ideals from the great Les Baxter – a set that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of his more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself!

Les BaxterSkins! - Bongo Party With Les Baxter ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Very groovy LP of bongo-oriented tracks conducted by Les Baxter for "young America" (or so says the label!) The overall feel is nice and jazzy, and the tracks have a nice snapping bongo sound. Tracks include "Reverberasia", "Bustin the Bongos", "Brazilian ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Early 50s. Good ... Just Sold Out!
Reissue of two early 10" Theremin LPs – music by Harry Revel, arrangements by Les Baxter, and theremin by Dr. Samuel Hoffman.

New Jackie GleasonLonesome Echo ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – and the back cover features a photo of Jackie and Dali shaking hands!

New Dr Samuel J HoffmanMusic For Peace Of Mind (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Good+ ... $14.99

New David McCallum (with David Axelrod)Music – A Bit More Of Me ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy stuff from the Capitol heyday of the late 60s! The record ostensibly gives TV star (from "U.N.C.L.E.")

Mighty Accordion BandThey Said It Couldn't Be Done ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Goofy accordion pop stuff, with a cover that has a gorilla holding the accordion and playing it in a number of different positions. We're assuming that the chimp doesn't play on the record, mostly because the playing's pretty skillful and peppy, especially on tracks like "Holiday for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
