Vanguard, Late 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)
A classic album of moogy wonderfulness! Jean Jacques Perry and Gershon Kingsley team up in one of the first, and best, albums of electronic pop tracks played on the moog. The pair achieve some really mad sounds through the use of early tape tricks – cutting, layering, chopping – all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used
A groovy set of loungey bossa tunes – pulled from 60s recordings on Capitol, Liberty, Pacific Jazz, and related labels. There's more than a few "authentic" bossa performers here, mixed with some others that pick up the groove nicely – working out their own west coast ... CD

Capitol (Japan), 1966. New Copy
An excellent concept for a bossa album from the 60s – a set that mixes together a bunch of different great guitarists – all with some light and lovely rhythm backings that really hit a groove! Jack Marshall put the set together – and in addition to his own guitar, the record ... CD

Le Coeur En Fete
AZ/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Easily one of the most trippy albums ever from Andre Popp – a French arranger who's usually best known for his lounge recordings of the 50s and 60s – but who's working here in a more psych-inspired mode that's right up there with the work of Jean Claude Vannier and Michel Colombier! ...

United Artists, Mid 60s. Sealed
Obscure late 60's pop stuff by this intellectual young man of song. Not exactly Scott Walker, but not too bad. With a nice version of John Barry's "The Knack", plus "Taste of Honey", "I've Just Seen a Face", and the original "When That I Was (A Tiny Little ... LP, Vinyl record album

Whipped Cream & Other Delights
A&M, 1965. Very Good
Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zodiac Suite
Capitol, 1957. Near Mint-
Very moody work from British maestro Norrie Paramor! The Zodiac Suite is a batch of 12 tracks all dedicated to various aspects of the horoscope – each scored slightly differently by Paramor, in keeping with the specific characteristics of each sign! Instrumentation is fully orchestral on ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sea Drift
Elektra, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A very unusual early album on Elektra – one that features Mort Garson conducting a set of strings in his own moody Sea Drift suite! The record's quite different than Garson's later moogy work, but it's still quite wonderful – beautifully conceived, composed, and arranged – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Concerto Electro
Command/ABC, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Not as "electro" as you might expect from the title, but a pretty nice little record from Dick! The album has Hyman playing Baldwin electric piano in front of larger orchestrations – running through a suite of tracks that move from jazz to classic to "rock" type rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cinema Legrand
MGM, Mid 60s. Sealed
Michel Legrand leads an american ensemble through a host of famous film themes from the 60s – like his own "Watch What Happens", plus "Manha De Carnaval", "Norma Jean's Theme", "Two For The Road", "Hombre", and "The Girl I've Never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Best Of Esquivel
RCA, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Nice nice set of some of Esquivel's best moments from his late-50s/early-60s RCA recordings! The cover's got Juan Garcia on the front, looking very cool, and the record includes a dozen groovy numbers that are the epitome of space age bachelor pad chic: "Poinciana", "Guadalajara" ...

Sole Forms
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Very cool work from Brooks Arthur – wonderfully subtle stuff, but with a jazzy undercurrent too! Instrumentation includes great reeds from Art Kaplan, keyboards from Bernie Leighton, and percussion from Artie Butler – and direction is by Garry Sherman and Fred Karlin. Titles include ...

Six Hours Past Sunset
RCA (Spain), 1969. Used
Moody and mellow – and perfect for late nite listening! The album has the tinkling piano of Mancini set over lush orchestrations – breezy, yet dark at the same time, outwardly simple, but filled with complex riffing and sophisticated washes of color and emotion. The larger group ... CD

Telephone Explosion (Canada), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
The long-lost follow-up to Haack's incredible Electric Lucifer album – a set recorded a decade after the first, but with a very similar electronic feel! Things are still quite spare, stark, and moogy here – and Haack sings in his electro-processed style, as on the first Lucifer set ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1968. Sealed
The sweet piano of Peter Nero takes on the music of Burt Bacharach – all with results that are every bit as groovy as you might expect! There's a bit more punch to the record than some of Nero's other 60s outings – possibly from the arrangement help from Frank Hunter, but maybe just ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert's Ninth
A&M, 1967. Used
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest ... LP, Vinyl record album

Light, Early 70s. Very Good+
Man, somebody at the Light label had to have been smoking something behind all those bibles – because this album, like some of the other groovy ones on the label, has a great sound to it that's nothing like some of their mostly religious records! The album's a mostly-moog affair – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Exotica Vol 3
Liberty, 1959. Very Good-
Sublime late 50s work from Martin Denny – his third album under the Exotica banner, and almost a deeper and weirder album than the other two! The sound here is extremely haunting – even more freed from conventional melody than the rest, and very fixated on the tonal possibilities that ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dot, 1968. Very Good+
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA (Spain), 1965. Used
The Latin sound is a groovy sound too – thanks to some great arrangements from the legendary Henry Mancini! The album's less a straight Latin date than it is a new approach to the grooves Mancini was laying down on his 60s soundtracks – a mix of bossa and cha cha-inspired themes that ... CD

Lounge Legends
Universal (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. Used
Forget James Bond. Forget EMI. This set shows later work from John Barry's career – much hipper and very different than the more popular soundtracks that you probably know already! The package was put together by the super-hip folks at Universal Music Germany – and it contains tracks ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Girl Talk
Castle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
The group's got a silly name, and a stuffy-looking leader, but man, can they get nice and funky! Ray Davies here is not to be confused with the leader of The Kinks – as this Ray is about 10 years older (at least), and a British session trumpet player who was to the UK easy scene of the 60s ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lounge Legends
Universal (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used
OK, so you've got other Burt Bacharach compilations – but trust us, this one's a gem, and it's filled with totally excellent material that you may not have otherwise! First off, the set was put together by the folks at Germany's division of Universal – the people responsible for Mad ... CD

RCA (Spain), 1968. Used
A great little album of Latiny tunes from Henry Mancini – played by a very hip lineup of west coast jazzmen! The rhythms have a great mix of Latin influences and Mancini magic – the kind of grooves you'd hear on his 60s soundtracks at the time, played by a lineup that includes Bud ... CD

Io E Mara
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Wild! Another beautiful release in the Easy Tempo series of lost Italian music from the late 60's and early 70's. This one's a haunting moody set of tracks that mix percussion, electric bass, organ, and a wordless female voice in a haunting soundscape of sexy tracks with a totally unique feel. ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Clockwork Orange
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint-
This isn't the official soundtrack for the film, but a separate recording of Walter Carlos' score that was released apart from the original soundtrack album. The LP includes electronic renditions of a few classical pieces – like the "William Tell Overture" and Beethoven's 9th ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonesome Echo
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good
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! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque ... LP, Vinyl record album

Man From UNCLE & Other TV Themes
Metro, Mid 60s. Sealed
Milton DeLugg and his orchestra play the groovy "Theme From UNCLE", plus some other incidental music from the show, like "Illya" and "Night People". The set also includes tracks from other 60s shows, like Mr. Novak, Flipper, Bonanza, and Peyton Place. Plus, Richard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mancini '67
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
Henry Mancini in 1967 – a time when he was definitely at the height of his powers, as you'll hear on this sweet set of big band recordings! The format here is much more jazz-based than some of Hank's soundtracks from the time – played with a great group of west coast musicians who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dynamica
RCA, 1961. Near Mint-
A sweet little Stereo Action set from Ray Martin, recorded with a very dynamic edge – hence the title! The feel here is a bit in the Esquivel mode – with orchestrations that swing all over the map, and use the stereo recording technology to their best advantage. And although Ray's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
Early work from Yma Sumac – with that moody mix of other worldly vocals and semi-Latin instrumentation that made her a popular one with the early exotic crowd. Yma runs up and down the vocal scale, while Moises Vivanco leads the band in a set of crashing dramatic orchestrations with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
