LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 9

A pre-exotica relic – cut just a year or two before bachelor pad music really broke big, and a very important album in helping get the whole thing started! The record's got a more serious feel than you might think – as pop classical conductor Morton Gould put together this mix of traditional, classical, and jazz compositions to create a suite of tropical sounds based around the compositions of Ernesto Lecuona. As the title would imply, the album's got a lot of percussion – mixed with the larger orchestrations that Gould normally used in his work – and titles include "Danza Lucumi", "Swamp Fire", "Batuque", "Ritual Fire Dance", "Jungle Drums", and "Gitanerias". (Red Seal pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dunhill, Late 60s. Poor
Amazing! The great LA rock/studio drummer Hal Blaine recorded this trippy batch of tracks during the late 60's – and it's way wilder than anything else he ever did! Blaine plays drums at the base of the whole thing, but they're processed with super heavy electronics (courtesy of Paul ... LP, Vinyl record album
