✨✧ Martin DennyAfro-Desia (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
Liberty/Rev-Ola (UK), 1959. Used ... $9.99
Weird and wonderful work from the great Martin Denny – and a record that adds in some great extra elements to his core exotica groove! The depth of the album is apparent on the very first tune – "Tsetse Fly", which features a buzzing variation on the sound of the inset in the title – then shows up even more strongly through the heavier rhythms and added vocals that appear on many of the album's other tracks. There's a style here that's almost Afro-Cuban at times – but which still glides across nicely with that heavenly Denny approach to melody and rhythm! Titles include "Tsetse Fly", "Ma'Chumba", "Simba", "Raftero", "Swamp Fire", and "Cubano Chant". CD

✨✧ Martin DennyBest Of Martin Denny ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Not really "the best", but a pretty nice collection of Denny's early work for Liberty – with a groovy photo on the back that shows him working with the group in action, beating on a big conga, while the rest of the band plays exotic percussion! Titles include "The Enchanted Sea", "Ruby", "Bali Hai", "China Nights", "Moonlight & Shadows", "Ebb Tide", and "Harbor Lights". LP, Vinyl record album

Martin DennyEnchanted Sea ... LP
Liberty, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
A great album by Denny, with a nice approach that has sort of a drifting South Seas feel! The record is one of his last good ones for Liberty, and has lots of nice tracks like "My Isle Of Golden Dreams", "Beyond The Reef", "Flotsam & Jetsam", and "Cross Current". Nice sexy cover, too!

T-BonesNo Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In) ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Nice groovy instrumentals from one of the best little combos of the 60's. The record includes their big hit "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)", plus a number of other tracks that have a similar "TV commercial" feel – like "Chiquita Banana", "Pizza Parlor", "What's In the Bag, Goose", and the groovy "Sippin N Chippin".

T-BonesSippin' 'N Chippin' ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A groovy batch of tight instrumental cuts from the T-Bones, including the hit title cut "Sippin' N Chippin'", plus "Forty Five (Colt 45 Theme)", "Tippy Toeing", 'Walkin' My Cat Named Dog", "Spanish Flea", "Sure gonna Miss Her", "The Phoenix Love Theme (Senza Fine)", "What Now My Love (Et Maintenant)" and more. These guys never quit, and were as much of a machine as the Ventures ever were. (Rock, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

VenturesHawaii Five O ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
If anybody could take a great tune and make it better, it was The Ventures – as you'll hear on this album's killer version of "Hawaii Five O" – as well as a host of other groovy goodies too! The set's still got the core sound of the quartet – loads of fuzzy guitars riffing away over heavy drums – but there's also some fuller arrangements too, but handled by groovy guys Mike Melvoin and George Tipton – both of whom keep things swinging in a west coast 60s style that's very much like the best modes over at Capitol Records! In addition to "Hawaii Five O", other titles include "The Letter", "Don't Give In To Him", "A Summer Place", "Lovin Things", "Stormy", and "I Can Hear Music". (Rock, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has splitting on the spine held with pieces of clear tape and splitting on the spine.)

✨✧ Augie ColonSophisticated Savage ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great record from Augie Colon – Martin Denny's Latin percussionist, and the force behind some of his best records! Augie's portrayed on the cover as a "sophisticated savage" – which is the way he grooves too, taking a bit of exotic sounds, weaving them with some highly percussive rhythms, and throwing in a bit of a Latin approach. The album's way more swingin' than a Martin Denny album, and features special guest vibes by Julius Wechter. Tracks include "Colon", "Tambo", "El Doctor", "Tabu", "Okolehau", "Manuela Boy", and "Minamahal Sinsamba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, nice and clean. Cover has some light wear – and label has a small bit of pen.)

✨✧ Martin DennyExotica ... LP
Liberty, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The birth of a sound and the birth of a legend – Martin Denny's first album in the Exotica series, and a record so great it named an entire genre! Denny certainly didn't invent the tropical style of easy listening that came to be known as "exotica" in the 50s – but with a record like this, he delivered the goods better than anyone else – by taking away all the too-sweet styles of Hawaiian music, and serving up a stripped-down, jazzy kind of sound! The album features Denny's classic original quartet – with Arthur Lyman on vibes and Augie Colon on bongos – and titles include "Stone God", "Jungle Flower", "Busy Port", "Lotus Land", and his hit recording of "Quiet Village". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing. Cover has some wear & splitting.)

✨✧ Martin DennyHypnotique/Exotica 3 ... CD
Liberty/Scamp, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 of Martin Denny's grooviest albums – back to back on one CD! Hypnotique is as compelling as the title would imply! The core group of the Denny Quartet – with Julius Wechter on vibes and percussion, and Augie Colon on congas and bongos – is augmented by the Jack Halloran Singers and additional Japanese instrumentation. The added sound is absorbed nicely by Denny's group, and the record has some great tracks like "Jungle Madness", "American in Bali", and "Voodoo Dreams". Exotica 3 is the third volume in Denny's great series that virtually defined the genre they're named after – and it's every bit as strong as volumes 1 & 2. Denny comes up with some wonderful numbers – working with the spare group that included Augie Colon and Julius Wechter – on titles that include "Moon of Manakoora", "Congo Train", "Bamboo Lullaby", and "Jungle River Boat".

✨✧ Martin DennyQuiet Village/Enchanted Sea ... CD
Liberty/Scamp, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 exotica classics on one CD! Quiet Village is an undisputed classic in the exotica field, and the record that yielded Denny his biggest hit – the title reworking of "Quiet Village", written by Les Baxter a few years earlier. The rest of the record's pretty darn nice, too – with Denny's trademark piano/percussion style firmly in place – and we can't think of a better way to start off a collection of exotic 50s tunes. Titles include "Sake Rock", "Martinique", "Tune From Rangoon", and "Pagan Love Song". Enchanted Sea is another great classic by Denny – with a nice approach that has sort of a drifting South Seas feel! The record is one of his last good ones for Liberty, and has lots of nice tracks like "My Isle Of Golden Dreams", "Beyond The Reef", "Flotsam & Jetsam", and "Cross Current". Nice sexy cover, too! CD

✨✧ VenturesUnderground Fire ... LP
Liberty, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Ventures pull a bit of fire from the late 60s underground – using influences from garage and psych to really trip out the usual sound of their guitars! Things are still relatively straight ahead, but there's more fuzz than before – and the choice of cool tunes really keeps things in territory that's pretty darn hip! Some of the best cuts are originals by the group – surprisingly jamming, and surprisingly creative – done in collaboration with arrangements from Mike Melvoin that really make all the instruments sparkle wonderfully! Drums can be hard, keyboards can be groovy, and the overall vibe of the record is a real surprise if you only know The Ventures' hits. Titles include "Embers In E Minor", "Higher Than Thou", "Up Up & Down", "Sea Of Grass", "Down On Me", and "Country Funk & The Canned Head". (Rock, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear and a cut corner.)

Bud ShankMichelle ... LP
World Pacific, 1965. Very Good- ... $0.99
Bud Shank takes on the sounds of The Beatles – and a whole host of other 60s pop stars as well – all with results that are as jazzy as they are groovy! The album's one of a few that Bud cut for Liberty in this format – alto and flute spread out over fuller backings from Bob Florence, a great arranger who knows how to make things swing by bringing in some wonderful 60s touches! There's a bit of guitar at times, some compressed horns – ala A&M – and some overall mod rhythms that help change things up nicely from tune to tune. Titles include "Michelle", "Yesterday", "Blue On Blue", "Sounds Of Silence", "Turn Turn Turn", "As Tears Go By", and "Girl". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)
