Bernie GreenBernie Green Plays More Than You Can Stand In Hi Fi ... LP
San Francisco, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Wild instrumentals from Bernie Green – a bit like some of the tracks he did on the Musically Mad album for RCA, but with more of a trad jazz element in the mix, similar to work by Raymond Scott from the 50s. Players in the group include Mundell Lowe and Tommy Mottola on guitar, plus Dick Hyman on piano and calliope – and tracks include "Ragging The Scale", "Mister Peppers Theme", "Railroad Train Samba", "A Francesca", "Idyl", "Summer", and "Saxophobia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting on the top seam with a piece of clear tape, and a mark from sticker removal on front.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhipped Cream & Other Delights ... LP
A&M/HRB, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.98
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". 50th Anniversary edition – newly remastered from the original analog tapes!

Assembled MultitudeAssembled Multitude ... LP
Atco, 1970. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the stranger albums on Atlantic at the start of the 70s – but a surprising hit as well! The group are a batch of Philly studio players who serve up instrumental versions of late 60s rock numbers, plus some of their own bits – all recording at the Sigma Sound studios, with arrangements from Richard Rome and Tom Sellers! It's our guess that some of the players are names we'd recognize from later 70s Philly soul – but here, they're working in a unique space that's partly fuzz instrumental, partly a bit more sensitive too – renditions that go way past the usual "let's remake the hits" style of other records, thanks to the arrangements. Titles include "Overture From Tommy", "Ohio", "Where The Woodbine Twineth", "Woodstock", "Mr Peppercorn", "Twenty Four Hours From Tulsa", and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSouth Of The Border ... LP
A&M, 1963. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Herb Alpert's going South Of The Border again in another marvelous set of modern mariachi tunes – taking that wonderful Tijuana Brass sound, and turning it towards a number of familiar hits of the day! There's equal parts 60s instrumental pop and Latin groove in the mix – and the punctuated yet compressed Alpert production really hits some sublime moments. Herb's really finding his own sound here – not just the one that would be used on other Tijuana Brass albums, but also on the genius to come from A&M! Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Up Cherry Street", "Mexican Shuffle", "El Presidente", "All My Loving", and "Numero Cinco". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousTaboo – An Exploration Into The Exotic World Of Taboo Vol 1 (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One song, swung a number of different ways – in this special 10" album that presents nine different readings of the classic Lecuona song "Taboo"! The tune was not just an exotica standard in the late 50s, but was a Latin classic too – and the versions here nicely skirt between both modes – from tropical instrumentation to more driving rhythms, with even a bit of vocals as well! Includes versions of "Taboo" by Arthur Lyman, Charles Blackwell, The Shangaans, Lecuona Cuban Boys, Caterina Valente, Tito Rivera, Frank Trumbauer, Sylvie Mora, and Cyril Diaz. LP, Vinyl record album
