✨✧ Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
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
(Orange & brown label stereo pressing. Cover has some splitting on the bottom seam & light wear.)

EsquivelInfinity In Sound Volume 2 ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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.)

Ferrante & TeicherHeavenly Sounds In Hi Fi ... LP
ABC, Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the best non-Winchester albums from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – not as crazy as some of their work, but still with some good elements of the piano trickery that made them famous. Titles include "Out Of This World", "East Of The Sun", "Over The Rainbow", "Stars In My Eyes", and "Stella By Starlight". Also features the original tracks "Serenade To A Star" and "Beyond The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

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

Ronnie AldrichDestination Love ... LP
Phase 4/London, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from Brit Easy pianist Ronnie Aldrich – filled with groovy late 60s tunes, and handled with some slightly funky and mod-styled backings that make the album groove a lot more than most of Ronnie's other work! The set's played by Ronnie and his "two pianos" (wink, wink), along with the London Festival Orchestra – and has a rich, full sound that comes out to best effect on the album's uptempo numbers. Titles include "Theme From In The Dark", "Good Morning Starshine", "My Cherie Amour", "Aquarius", "Classical Gas", "Midnight Cowboy", "Quentin's Theme", and "The Windmills Of Your Mind".

United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great one from arranger Manny Albam – heavy on drums, but with some nice exotic touches too! No players listed – but we're guessing it's a pretty hip lineup! (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing.)

Herb AlpertSummertime ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting on the seams.)

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassChristmas Album ... LP
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
A beautiful Holiday classic from Herb – recorded for A&M during his glory years, and done in the core Tijuana Brass style, but with some added arrangements on voices and strings by Shorty Rogers! The album's worth it alone for Herb's great take on the Bacharach groover "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but it also includes the tasty track "Las Mananitas", plus the holiday favorites "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song", "Sleigh Ride", "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" and "Jingle Bell Rock". 10 tracks in all, the perfect backdrop for the holiday office party! (Holiday Music, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Newly remastered version – nice and heavy!)
