✨✧ Les BaxterAfrican Jazz ... LP
Capitol/So Far Out (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, grooviest records we've ever heard from the great Les Baxter – and a real standout set, even amidst his other exotica albums for Capitol! This one really delivers on the "jazz" promised in the title – thanks to strong tenor solos from Plas Johnson, who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterConfetti ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
A groovy Les Baxter album from the pre-exotica years – a set that showcases all the lively, jaunty styles that Les brought to his initial instrumental run on Capitol Records! The mix of sounds is as colorful as the title might imply – some Latin modes, wordless vocal passages, and ... read more CD

Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $3.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD!

✨✧ Les BaxterTeen Drums ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Les Baxter's best for Capitol! Forget the "teen" in the title, because this is a super-hip album filled with great percussion tracks. More than a few of the numbers have a Latiny groove – mixing strong exotica scoring with rawer percussion than usual, and some occasional ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two unusual Jackie Gleason albums – back to back on a single CD! On Come Saturday Morning, Jackie Gleason steps nicely into the 70s – on a record that has the aging maestro still very much in the lush, laidback style of his classic albums of the 50s – but over a set of tunes that ... read more CD

✨✧ Jackie GleasonLonesome Echo ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – and the back cover features a photo of Jackie and Dali shaking hands! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brit easy exotica! Ron Goodwin was to the British easy scene of the 50s what Les Baxter was to that of the US – a very capable leader with a talent for impeccable arrangements of many different styles, and a mode of going global that really brought the whole thing home.

Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most obscure albums by vocalist Yma Sumac – and one of the most compelling too!

Capitol (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost gem from Brian Wilson's dad! As the cover says, "The talented father of the famous Beach Boys presents instrumental interpretations of his and other compositions." Basically, Murry was getting the squeeze from Brian, and this was Murry's way of saying "hey, I can do ... read more CD
