✨✧ Elsa Popping & Her Pixieland Band (Andre Popp)Delirium In Hi Fi ... LP
Columbia, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost Hi Fi gem! Released in America under the name of "Elsa Popping & Her Pixieland Band" – the record is actually a stunning collaboration between French orchestra leader Andre Popp and sound effects wizard Pierre Fatosme. The sound is wild and swinging, with a feel that's similar to Esquivel, but with a lot weirder effects, and a little bit less music-based sound overall. Popp cares less about swinging than Esquivel, and he's much freer with his music – as there's moments on here that sound like avant garde chamber pieces, which then swing into tight little bits with cool sounds made by editing and playing with tape. The album's wonderful all the way through – with very high quality material that makes a lot of the other cheaper lounge releases sound hollow! Titles include "Java", "La Paloma", "La Java Du Diable", "Java Des Bombes Atomiques", and "Adios Muchachos". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur LymanLeis Of Jazz ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The title's no lie, as the album's a lot jazzier than some of Arthur Lyman's other records – a bit more upbeat, and almost like some vibes-led combo from the LA scene of the 50s! Pianist Alan Soares has a strong role in the set – providing a bit more bite than usual for an Arthur Lyman session – and really matching the harder sound of Lyman's vibes and marimbas nicely. Drums are often a bit stronger too – more use of the regular kit instead of just percussion – and there's a nice mix of lyricism and stronger rhythms here that almost reminds us of a late 50s Cal Tjader date for Fantasy. Ethel Azama guests, with moody vocals on one track called "Lullaby of the Leaves – and other tracks include "Trigger Fantasy", "How High The Moon", "Leis Of Jazz", and "My Funny Valentine".

✨✧ Arthur LymanOn Broadway ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Sealed ... $4.99
A set that's exactly what it promises, Lyman-styled exotic readings of Broadway tunes – most of which are taken pretty far from their origins in shows! The versions here are all instrumental – with Lyman's trademark blend of vibes, percussion, piano, and more – and the group certainly feels free to take off nicely on some of the cuts, really showing their flair for turning a tune on its ear. Possibly even more unusual is the fact that the album only features 4 long songs – mini-suite readings of the full scores to "My Fair Lady", "The King & I", "South Pacific", and "Porgy & Bess".

✨✧ Arthur LymanLegend Of Pele ... LP
Hi Fi, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums ever recorded by Arthur Lyman – cut shortly after he departed Martin Denny's group, with a very similar exotica style. Lyman's vibes are nice and spooky, ringing out in the echoey setting of the album – which was Henry Kaiser's incredible Aluminum Dome in Honolulu. A great bit of postwar colonial exotica trapped on wax, and brought back to the mainland for folks in suburban LA – and featuring the tracks "Magic Island", "Cubana Chant", "Fire Down Below", "Cumana", "Hana Pele", "Pele", and "Tropical".

Hi Fi, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first few albums that Arthur Lyman recorded after his split with Martin Denny – and still very much in the best Denny mode – mixing vibes with percussion, and adding in lots of cool effects! There's a fair bit of exotic sounds in the mix – including birdcalls from group members – but Lyman's vibes are the real charm here – both metallic and warm at the same time, making for a nice degree of drama in ways that don't always show up on his later albums. Titles include "Jungle Fantasy", "Sakura", "Babalik Ka Rin", "Love Dance", and "Return To Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterWild Guitars ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A pretty great album from Les – quite different than his exotica albums from the time, but in a nice way! The record features lots of guitars – as you'd guess from the title – including a lot of Spanish-type acoustic work that's set up in some pretty tasty acoustic grooves. The record has a strongly percussive approach that makes it sparkle nicely – and there's a bit of electricity in the guitars, creating nice hi-fi effects. Titles include "Sabre Dance", "Ritual Fire Dance", "Mandolino", "Tico Tico", "Brazilian Slave Song", "Desilusao", "Cabayo", and "Tell Me Margarita". LP, Vinyl record album

Xavier CugatBread, Love, & Cha Cha Cha ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Very Good ... $8.99
One of Cugie's more popular albums – and a record that has him re-recording older hits for the hi-fi generation. The groove's pretty much in the older Latin style – but the newer recordings were done in a stereo setting, which makes for a bit better sound than some of the originals. Titles include "Frenesi", "Suavecito", "Penthouse Mambo", and "Nmi Musica Es Para Ti", "La Paloma". (Latin, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

John Scott TrotterThousand & One Notes ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the grooviest albums we've ever heard from John Scott Trotter – an arranger who spent a fair bit of time working with Bing Crosby, but who's definitely going for the hi-fi crowd with the vibrant sound of this set! The orchestrations are full, with a fair bit of strings and woodwinds – but Trotter often eschews sleepier styles for more pointed modes – and has the ensemble working with just the kind of flurry of notes he mentions in the title! Tracks include "Sabre Dance", "Blue Tango", "Solitude", "Tico Tico", and "Gobelues". CD

Weird mix of jazz, classical, exotica, and more – all packaged together in a cover that features two skeletons hanging from a set of gallows! The tracks aren't as scary as the cover – but the hi-fi package is a good one, and there's a few nice numbers, like "Theme From Richard Diamond" and "Scheherajazz" done by Skip Martin, and the cool "Fire Goddess" by the Surfmen.

A pretty cool record – even if it is mostly a "hi fi" sampler from RCA. The record demonstrates the full range of RCA's Living Stereo method – and it's got Ken Nordine narrating his way through a host of tracks from the label. As is typical with this sort of thing, about half of the music is classical – but there's also some nice numbers in the easy mode by Skitch Henderson, Ralph Flanagan, Lena Horne, and Jerome Hines. The best part is still Ken Nordine, though! (Comedy/Spoken, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

A&M, 1965. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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 compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic! This great Burt Bacharach score to an obscure film has some of his most fantastic orchestrations ever. The sound is cool, breezy, and with some amazing changes that make you gasp anew at his genius. Dionne Warwick sings on some tracks, and it's nice to hear her do material that you're not too familiar with. Titles include "He's Moving On" and "Amanda", and it has a gatefold cover.

An excellent gimmick – and yet another way that United Artists was trying to push its "Bond" catalog in the 60s! Count Basie brings a soulful swing to the work of John Barry – hitting hard on the tracks with his own smoking piano, and an orchestra filled with some of his best players, like Al Grey, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – as well as Eddie Lockjaw Davis, an artist who wasn't credited on the session at he time. Arrangements are by Chico O'Farrill and George Williams – and titles include "Thunderball", "From Russia With Love", "007", "Girl Trouble", and "Goldfinger". (Jazz, Now Sound) CD

Pablo Beltran & His OrchestraDust On The Moon ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good- ... $4.99
An early American release from Mexican bandleader Pablo Beltran – a talent who recorded for RCA around the same time as Juan Garcia Esquivel! Beltran's music is a bit more conventionally swinging – large group material that's heavy on the brass, also dosed with a bit of saxes too – and almost always away from any of the more romantic cliches of the time, with a lean quality that really makes Pablo's music stand out. A few tunes have more pronounced Latin rhythms – although the date's more of a jazz-based one overall – and titles include "The Bullfighter's Song", "Mambo In Seville", "Lisboa Antigua", "Dust On The Moon", "Tender Trap", and "Heart".

Essential, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really well-chosen batch of exotica tunes – one that gets way past the obvious, despite the hit reference of the title – and which follows the genre well into the 60s, through a stream of overlooked album cuts that never fully got their due! The set list is great – and features some surprising currents of jazz and Latin that fit in nicely alongside more island-themed cuts – all with an especially strong focus on artists from the west coast scene, but also some work from other locales as well! Titles include "Those Brown Eyes" by The Coachmen, "Goodbye" by Gordon Jenkins with Marshall Royal, "Algo Sabroso" by Nelson Padron, "In A Sentimental Mood" by Verlye Mills, "Blue Prelude" by Jack Burger, "Caravan" by Dick Hyman, "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" by Rene Bloch, "Theme From Romeo & Juliet" by Bob Florence, "The Girl From Ipanema" by Rene Paulo, "Begin The Beguine" by Korla Pandit, "My Sweet Sweet" by The Surfers, and "Pink Lady" by Jack Millman.

Alessandro AlessandroniBarocco & Romantico (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The title only partly gives this one away – as sound library genius Alessandro Alessandroni turns towards the world of baroque and romantic music for inspiration – yet also manages to serve up something that's very much his own in the process! This isn't one of those records in which classical compositions get an easy listening spin – and instead, Alessandroni has a way of evoking ancient ideas while still also using lots of groovy Italian soundtrack modes – a bit like the way the occasional baroque theme or electric harpsichord would turn up in some groovy 60s film scores. Both of those elements appear here, alongside other keyboards, some acoustic guitar, and other instrumentation – used in a way that's as evocative as some of Alessandro's film work. Titles include "Sonata Allegra", "Canzone Romantica", "Largo Barocco, "Minuetto In La Magg", "Giga Per Mandolino", "Mazurka Moderata", and "Variazione Romantiche".

Herb AlpertSummertime ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
Late 60s brilliance from the legendary Herb Alpert – one of a few key records that has him reinventing his style for a whole new generation! Herb name-checks Gil Evans, Miles Davis, and Ahmad Jamal in the notes – and he's definitely opening up the style of his arrangements here – to make room for all the wonderful changes in instrumental music that were taking place at the time. There's less of the fake Mexican-style sound of the early records – and more of that sublime blend of Brazilian, jazz, soundtrack, and singer/songwriter touches that marked the other A&M records of the period. The sound still has Herb's trumpet up front – but there's a lot more space in the arrangements – and titles include a great cover of Brian Wilson's "Darlin", plus "Summertime", Martha My Dear", "Catch A Falling Star", "The Nicest Things Happen","If You Could Read My Mind", and "Hurt So Bad".

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... $2.99
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 effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". CD

A&M/Herb Alpert, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
A fantastic record from the late 60s years of Herb Alpert – a time when the trumpeter was really opening up his sound, and starting to hit some of the same cool styles of his other great acts on the A&M label! Gone are the trademark Cali-Mex arrangements of the early Tijuana Brass records – and in their place are these soaring, soulful styles that draw heavily from the late 60s changes in Brazilian music, American soundtracks, and jazz! Shorty Rogers helped a bit with the charts, and you can definitely hear his cool touches in the mix – and the trumpet solos are nicely changed up from previous records too. Herb does a great job with Nilsson's excellent cut "Without Her", and the band grooves nicely on Brazil cuts "The Sea Is My Soil" and "Zazueira", plus "Pretty World", "To Wait For Love", "Sandbox", "Marjorine", and "The Continental".

A&M, 1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Sweet mid 70s work from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – still at the height of their powers on Coney Island – rolling effortlessly between upbeat, jazzy numbers and more laidback and melodic ones! This one has a pretty big sound overall, all produced and arranged by Herb, who is in fine, re-energized form here. By this point, Herb could've simply coasted on nostalgia, but there's a more timeless feel on this one than on a lot of his 60s albums, honestly, and the band is really firing on all cylinders. Breezy fun on par with Herb's best of the 70s! Titles include "Coney Island", "I Have Dreamed", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Catfish", "This Masquerade", "Carmine", "Vento Bravo", "I Belong", "Senor Mouse" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Chet AtkinsSolid Gold 68/Solid Gold 69 ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavyweight gold from guitarist Chet Atkins – two albums back to back! Solid Gold 68 is a sweet set that has the guitar of Chet Atkins taking on the big hits of the year – with surprisingly groovy results! The arrangers here are Bill Walker and Cam Mullins, and a number of the tunes get a bit more of a 60s bounce than some of Chet's other records – maybe less Nashville and more pop instrumental – not just in the choice of the tunes, but in the way they're carried across! Chet's guitar is still quite upfront in the mix, with that wonderful sound – and titles include "The Sound Of Silence", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Slick", "Harper Valley PTA", "Light My Fire", and "Grazing In The Grass". Solid Gold 69 follows the formula of some of the Chet Atkins Gold albums from previous years – but also reflects the very groovy changes taking place in music at the time – as Chet moves into a great range of material that moves quite far from his country roots! The setting is all instrumental – with arrangements by Bergen White, John Ragsdale, and Norbert Putnam – and titles include "So What's New", "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Both Sides Now", "Hey Jude", "Aquarius", "Folsom Prison Blues", and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".

Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, sly syncopation, and well-placed instrumental solos! The sound is breathtaking throughout – a new level of maturity and majesty for 60s instrumental pop – and the record's an enduring classic that deserves a place in every sensitive record collection. Includes the amazing cut "Pacific Coast Highway", plus great versions of other classics, like "Wanting Things", "She's Gone Away", "Knowing When To Leave", and "This Guy's In Love With You".

Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House Is Not A Home", "Bond Street", "Reach Out For Me", "Are You There", "Windows Of The World" – but you may not know the arrangements, which are superb – quite different than the more famous vocal versions you've probably heard ad infinitum, and recorded at a level that brings a whole new magic and majesty to 60s pop! An essential record for any fan of all things groovy – and an album of new pleasures each time we hear it! CD

Burt Bacharach/Peter MatzOn The Flip Side ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
An obscure and wonderful chapter in the career of Burt Bacharach – material penned for a 1967 TV musical starring Rick Nelson and Joanie Sommers – all of it perfect 60s Bacharach pop all the way through! The plot of the musical is a bit silly, but the performance isn't – tightly-crafted vocal numbers that often mix Burt's older Brill Building style with a bit more of a Sunshine Pop kind of approach. Although penned by Bacharach, the music is actually conducted by Peter Matz – who does a great job of retaining the maestro's sense of space and timing, but also unlocks some bolder flourishes in the tunes, and manages to get some really amazing vocal performances out of both Sommers and Nelson! There's a sophistication here that goes beyond the roots of both singers – and the record's filld with lesser-known tracks that still sparkle with plenty of Bacharach brilliance – including "It Doesn't Matter Anymore", "They're Gonna Love It", "Juanita's Place Montage", "Try To See It My Way", "They Don't Give Medals", "Fender Mender", and "Juanita's Place".

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.

The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels.

Both records are mighty nice – a mixture of familiar funk with some deeper tones that are equally compelling – almost with the full flourish of a film soundtrack in scope,a nd with a good focus on some of the strongest standout numbers, which are occasionally presented with a bit of variation.
