Innovation 2/Cacophonic (UK), 1952. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Amazing early tape experiments from the team of Otto Luening and Vladimir Ussachevsky – both early pioneers in postwar space age sounds!

Arthur LymanBahia ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Very Good ... $6.99
An exotica classic! Bahia is awash in wonderful sounds – some light sound effects, especially birds, borrowed from the Martin Denny exotica mode – but also some more fully-formed instrumental passages that also show a strong Les Baxter influence too! There's some really wonderful vibes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur LymanBwana A ... LP
Hi Fi, 1958. Very Good ... $4.99
Classic exotica from Arthur Lyman – a set that really shows the lessons he learned from Martin Denny – and his willingness to take the genre into some strong new directions!

Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good ... $7.99
One of Arthur Lyman's first LPs –- a brilliant set of percussively grooving tracks, modulated at a low tempo, and recorded in the Henry J.

Crown/Clinck (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
Wicked funk from Japanese keyboardist Norio Maeda – also a hell of an arranger, too – as you'll hear on this superb set from the start of the 70s!

Columbia, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A beautiful lost bit of Exotica from the early 60's!

A Henry Mancini double header – two albums back to back! First up is Theme From Z – cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well! The arrangements here are full, ... read more CD

Jean-Pierre Massiera (Horrific Child)L'Etrange Mr Whinster ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $22.99
Strange and incredible mid 70s atmospherics from Jean-Pierre Massiera – dark atmospherics that roll from heady psych rock to cerebral funk and proggy dynamics – taken to a far deeper dimension thanks to Massiera's hypnotic use of tape samples and layered vocal errata! It's amazing how ... (Rock, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A pair of albums from French maestro Paul Mauriat – back to back on a single CD!

Vocalion (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Two early 70s albums from Paul Mauriat – both surprisingly groovy! First up is a grand L'Avventura from Mauriat – a set that's different from the more spacious sounds of Mauriat's famous 60s material, with a vibe that maybe puts the whole orchestra upfront in the mix, and gives them ... read more CD

Paul MauriatSeven Seas/Summer Has Flown ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy ... $16.99
80s work from Paul Mauriat – two records that show that the 60s easy listening star was still going strong!

Gary McFarlandToday ... CD
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $21.99
Wild stuff – and very different than Gary McFarland's earlier albums! Today was recorded late in Gary's career, and is has him moving a bit away from jazz – into a more sunshine pop feel – one that still retains plenty of the bossa and breezy elements of his Verve work, but which ...
