Copper Plated Integrated CircuitPlugged In Pop ... LP
Command, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Very cool moog album with a Perry-Kingsley feel. That is, it's got sort of a sharp electronic sound, but with grooviness underneath that keeps the whole thing going along at a jaunty pace. At times, the electronic sounds will break down into a bunch of noise, and then jump into a swingin' poppy track, then break down again. Lots of nice original stuff, like "Resonant Circuit", "Circuit Breaker", and "Jazz Waltz Circuit" – plus a few covers. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

EsquivelInfinity In Sound Volume 2 ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good ... $5.99
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 (mono pressing – on glow-in-the-dark vinyl) ... LP
Elektra/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
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 mono pressing on limited edition glow-in-the-dark vinyl!)

Eden Ahbez & OthersWild Boy – The Lost Songs Of Eden Ahbez (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99 31.99
A much-needed look at the untapped musical legacy of Eden Ahbez – the west coast mystic who's best remembered for delivering the song "Nature Boy" to Nat King Cole (legendarily walking in barefooted during a recording session!) – but who also made a range of other great music in the years that followed! Apart from "Nature Boy", and Ahbez's rare Eden's Island album from 1960, most of his other songs have fallen in in the shifting sands of time – but this record does a great job of digging up the best of the bunch, and presents them in a well-documented package that's much better than some of the public domain Eden Ahbez records that have hit the market. Song songs are by Eden, in a range of exotic vocal modes – others are by contemporaries, some in collaboration with Ahbez, some working on their own – and there's a great rante of trcks that icnlude "The Clam Man", "Umgowah", "India", "Child Of Nature", "Anna Was Mine (demo)", "Overcomers Of The World", and "Monterey" by Eden Ahbez – plus "Surfer John" by Nature Boy & Friends, "Wild Boy" by Mort Wise & The Wisemen, "Eden's Island" by Arthur Lyman, "Land Of Love" by Nat King Cole, "Hey Jacque" by Eartha Kitt, and "Palm Springs" by Ray Anthony. (Put together by the same guy who did Exotic World Of Eden Ahbez – but with different tracks, and even better sound!) LP, Vinyl record album

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 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- ... $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

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!
