Les BaxterHell's Belles (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy ... $4.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a razor sharp edge to the groove! A few tracks have vocals, but it's the funk rock instrumentals that drive this one into pulp soundtrack classic status. Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove", "Chain Fight", "Dan's Theme", "Scoobee Doo" and the killer "Wheels (Main Title Theme)". This great limited edition CD version has a 4 bonus tracks made up of the full version of the end title song, medleys of shorter cues from the film, instrumental bits and more. "Travelin' Man", "Take It From Me (Source)/Gila Monster/Cathy Left Behind /Mongoose Gets Beans", "Gang Rides Through The Hills/Tosses Bike Over Bank/Snake Or Rope" and more.

Les BaxterMan With The X-Ray Eyes/Tales Of Terror ... CD
La La Land, 1962/1963. Used ... $14.99
Eerie early 60s material from Les Baxter – his soundtrack work for Roger Corman's American International feature The Man With X-Ray Eyes – plus Corman's Morella entry in the Poe-themed anthology Tales Of Terror! The Man With X-Ray Eyes is one of those groovy soundtracks where the mood and style of the material matches the titles pretty greatly – "Penthouse", "Fast Twist", "Casino Lounge", "Posh" and more. Fun stuff! The Morella material is, appropriately more gothic horror themed and it's very well done at that! Includes "The Corpse And The Ghost", "Lenora/Morella/Fire & Smoke/Eerie House" and more. This great La La Land set also includes 4 bonus tracks from The Man With X-Ray Eyes. (Soundtracks, Now Sound) CD

Dr Samuel J Hoffman/Les Baxter/Harry RevelTheremin – Music Out Of The Moon/Perfume Set To Music/Music For Peace Of Mind ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Early 50s. Used 3 CDs ... $26.99
Amazing! This is a stunning 3 CD set that reissues the original 10" albums of early Theremin material by Dr. Samuel Hoffman! The records were originally issued by Capitol and RCA in the early 50's, and they're as rare as can be on vinyl. This set packs tiny 5" replicas of the albums themselves into a box, along with a very nice booklet that contains a wealth of information on Hoffman, the Theremin, and lots of other nice bits. The orchestrations for the albums are by Les Baxter and Billy May, and the works were written by the enigmatic Harry Revel. The sound is incredible, and is a wild mix of sci fi and easy themes, with a feel that is out of this world! The package is more beautiful than we can describe, and this is a long-overdue tribute to 3 of the weirdest records of all time! CD

✨✧ Les BaxterAfrican Jazz/Jungle Jazz ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1958/1959. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late 50s Exotica jazz gems from Les Baxter for Capitol – Africa Jazz and Jungle Jazz in a single set! Africa Jazz is one of his greatest records, and one that's got just about everything you'd ever want! Plas Johnson plays tenor, and his solos are right out front, and recorded beautifully. There's a number of other great LA session players on percussion and vibes, and the arrangements have a definite jazz bent to them. Tracks include "Congo Train", "Walkin Watusi", "Ostrich Hunt", "Balinese Bongos", and "Mombasa After Midnight". Jungle Jazz is also fantastic stuff, and recorded with beautiful sound! 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 include "Amazon Falls", "Coco", "Isle Of Cuba", "Jungla Brava", "Go Chango", and "Blue Jungle". CD

✨✧ Les BaxterBora Bora – Original Soundtrack ... LP
AIP, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not classic exotica from Les – but some fantastic soundtrack work with a groovy late 60s feel! Many of the tracks have a rumbling electric bass and some warm keyboards underneath a canopy of sexy strings – in a way that sounds like some of the best Italian scores from the late 60s, which probably accompanied exotic sex films as silly as this one! Titles include "Coral Cliffs", "Schooner", "Amber Skin", "Trade Winds", "Emerald Sea", and "Bora Bora". (Soundtracks, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterSpace Escapade (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums by Les Baxter – and one of the best! The record features an excellent batch of "space exotica" tracks, set amidst some very lively arrangements, all packaged in one of the greatest album covers of the 50s! Les' writing and leading are as excellent as always, and the record has a beautiful sound that never gets as soppy as some of the other 50s space-age albums. Titles include "A Distant Star", "Moonscape", "Mr. Robot", "The Commuter", and "The Other Side Of The Moon". This CD edition includes a heck of a lot of great bonus material – a selection of mid 50s singles by Baxter, both a-sides and b-sides – some a bit more pop and less exotica oriented, but still plenty off beat and and nicely odd, and some sweeter numbers, too. Includes the 12 tracks from the original album, and 18 bonus tracks, including "Cornflakes", "Toy Tigers", "Sinner Man", "Blue Echo", "Cherchez La Femme", "Molodia Loca", "Please Mr Sun" and much more.

Neil NormanGreatest Science Fiction Hits II ... LP
GNP, 1980. Very Good ... $1.99
Late, but moody LP of Sci-Fi electronic space themes. Les Baxter plays keyboards and Neil Norman plays synth & theremin, and the two of them make it through some really well-chosen material, including a few originals like "March of the Lizard Men" and "Daughter of the Lesser Moon".

VariousTechnicolor Paradise – Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Delights (3CD set) ... CD
Numero, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 34.98
An insane new chapter in the mighty legacy of the Numero Group – not the rare soul, obscure psych, or underground folk the label has covered with other releases – but instead a huge batch of under-discovered gems from the exotica scene of the postwar years – essentially the farther reaches of the bigger scene that had stars like Martin Denny and Les Baxter in the spotlight! In case you're not hip, the exotica groove is kind of a hipper take on the Pacific Islands sounds – not mainstream Hawaiian music, but instead usually small combo material that has lots of percussion mixed with electric instrumentation, either on guitar or keyboards – set to imagined themes of life in the south seas, often in a very cool mix of jazz and dreamy modes. The music here is every bit as well-researched and deeply-dug as that on other Numero compilations – and it's fascinating to hear just how many folks were influenced by the huge exotic movement of the late 50s – and were motivated to turn out their own takes on the music, sometimes with styles that rivaled that of the big records of the time – sometimes with very weird and offbeat modes that are even more striking! As always with Numero, the presentation is superb – a huge set of notes with an equally large amount of music – all served up in a mighty handsome package, with work by Bill & Jean Bradway, The Shelltones, The Voodoos, The Jaguars, Jerry & The Catalinas, The Gems, The Blazers, Chayns, The Palatons, Red Harrison & His Zodiacs, The Melody Mates, The Monzas, Carmen, Darla Hood, The Baton Of Andre Brummer, Joan Joyce Trio, The Castiles, The Potted Palm, Don Sargent & His Buddies, Clyde Derby, Chico Jose, Arnie Derksen & Chise, The Slaves, Bruce Norman Quintet, and many more.
