An incredibly evocative record – one of the strangest of its kind, and an audio treasure that we've loved for years!

Ron AnthonyOh! Calcutta ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet mix of jazz, funk, and some tighter instrumental modes – a set that takes all the best energy of the Flying Dutchman label, and packs it into shorter tracks that have a very groovy feel!

Emilio Aparicio MoogExpansion Galactica ... CD
Mental Experience (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Really great sounds from an artist with "moog" in his name – and a fair bit in his music as well!

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 29.99
Marcel Azzola is a great French talent on the musette (aka accordion) – one who glides along with the best breezy modes of bigger postwar players like Gus Viseur or Jo Privat!

Sid BassMoog Espana ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Sid Bass runs through a bunch of moogy versions of tunes in the "Spanish" idiom – either traditional favorites, or more modern pop Latin tracks – with plenty of fast-type moogy work, designed to approximate (we think) a Spanish guitar sort of approach! Cuts include "Grana ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/Captain High (Germany), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
One of our favorite albums ever from the mighty Les Baxter – and one of the few from his Capitol years that really has a strong jazz component!

Capitol, 1957. Very Good- ... $4.99

A later album, but one that still features Les doing some great Latiny bits – heading up the 101 Strings ensemble, for a sweeping and groovy kind of sound!
