✨✧ Jacques BrelIf You Go Away – Jacques Brel Is Alive & Singing In Paris ... LP
Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
An important early release of Brel's best work in the US – titled in a way that references the hit musical based on his songs, and Rod McKuen's butchered translation of "Ne Me Quitte Pas". Fortunately, the album includes the original Brel recording of "Ne Me Quitte Pas", plus the tracks "La Moribond", "Marieke", "La Colombe", "L'Are De La Betise", "La Tendresse", "Les Flamands", and "La Valse A Mille Temps". (French, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(In the heavy gatefold cover. Booklet is included. Cover has light wear.)

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that great modern style of funk that he was forging at Capitol during the late 60s. The record's not really preachy, nor is it proggy. It's more of a complex blueprint of rock, jazz, funk, and touches of soul – all hung together on the same sort of "mass" structure that Axelrod would later use with Cannonball and on his own. Titles include "Kyrie Eleison", "Gloria", "Benedictus", and "Sanctus". (Rock, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue.)

✨✧ ElectrophonIn A Covent Garden ... LP
Polydor (UK), Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
German group, doing a bunch of weird classical stuff on the moog (and maybe other stuff – we can't really read German too well!) The cover makes it look kind of like an LP on Brain, but it's a little bit more sedate than that. (Rock, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light mark from an old sticker, but is nice overall.)

EsquivelInfinity In Sound Volume 2 ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good ... $7.99
An incredible record of over the top arrangements – all produced with the kind of all-around sound that made Esquivel's best records so great! Juan Garcia's really got his trademark sound in place by the time of this set – and the album's got plenty of "wah wah" and "doo doo" vocals, mixed with swinging strings and soaring piano – in a sound that's perfectly summed up by the cover's "trombones into infinity" look. Titles include "Baia", "La Bamba", "Sentimental Journey", "Espana Cani", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing. Cover has a split top seam.)

Mort GarsonZodiac Cosmic Sounds (glow-in-the-dark vinyl) ... LP
Elektra/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... On July 25, 2017
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to more of a tripped-out pop-psychedelic artist of the latter part of the decade. Garson brings a nice funky undercurrent to the set – in a style that's similar to the work of David Axelrod, but which also uses a bit more electric instrumentation. Each track features a spoken bit on a Zodiac sign – written by Jacques Wilson, and spoken by Cyrus Faryar – and the album also features some nice moog work by Paul Beaver! Titles include "Aries", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Leo", and so on! (P.S.: The label says "Must Be Played In The Dark!") LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversary pressing on glow-in-the-dark vinyl!)

✨✧ 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".

Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, percussion, and even a bit of whistling on a few tracks! The vibe's very much in the best Verve/Impulse takes on the bossa – done with a clear California influence, which keeps things cool and breezy – and which also pushes Almeida past his sometimes-staid style on guitar. Two cuts also feature some great vocals by Irene Kral – and titles include "Twilight In Rio", "Old Guitaron", "Sarah's Samba", "Izabella", "Winter Moon", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Choro For People In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing.)

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLonely Bull ... LP
A&M, 1962. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Herb Alpert's first-ever album – a runaway hit that was the birthplace of so many groovy things – not just the start of the Tijuana Brass sound, also the birth of A&M Records! The album's the first to feature Herb's trademark take on the Mexican band style – done here with a bit more "jaunty" pop stylings than in later years, including a "rocking" electric bass that kicks along nicely at the bottom of some of the more chart-oriented tunes. The first full album on A&M – and the beginning of an empire – with titles that include "The Lonely Bull", "El Lobo", "Desafinado", "Mexico", "Never On Sunday", and "Struttin With Maria". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear along the bottom seam.)

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWarm ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $0.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhipped Cream & Other Delights ... LP
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

Herb Alpert & The TJBConey Island ... LP
A&M, 1975. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

Leda Annest/Phil MoorePortrait Of Leda ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A wonderfully moody session from the late 50s – one that features the eerie vocals of Leda Annest over the orchestrations of Phil Moore! Leda's got a haunting voice that's somewhere in the range of Yma Sumac, but a bit less dramatic – more kind of a wordless instrument, used amidst the orchestrations in broad washes of color and tone. Moore scored the entire piece for Leda's voice – an extended 3 part suite that runs through series of dark, jazz, and playful moods – all featuring some incredible vocals by Leda!
