Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $3.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and ... read more CD

Bill Black's ComboTurn On Your Love Light ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $21.99
Bill Black and his classic combo – but with a sound that's a lot more Stax Records than usual! The grooves are gritty right from the get-go – no surprise, given that the back cover notes begin with an anecdotal definition of funk – one that Black and his group clearly seem to ...

James Bond (Jimmy Bond)James Bond Songbook ... CD
Mira/BGP (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Way more than just a James Bond cash-in record – and instead an ultra-hip jazz session from the west coast scene of the 60s!

Michel ColombierMichel Colombier ... CD
Chrysalis/Anthology (France), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A great bit of funky fusion from Michel Colombier – and quite different than his early work on the Paris scene of the late 60s!

Floyd Cramer takes it to school – with two of his "class" albums from the 70s! Class Of 73 is a mighty nice set – a record that has the trademark Cramer piano getting maybe a bit more of a contemporary touch in the hands of arranger Barry McDonald – who swirls in ... read more CD

Maxwell DavisBatman & Other Themes ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A Batman knock-off record – but a really great one! This set was originally issued in the mid 60s on the cheapo Crown label on the west coast – and it's a surprisingly smoking set of instrumental tracks that are heavy on the Hammond and horns, and which romp along with a mod sort of go- ... read more CD

Gals & PalsGals & Pals Sing Something For Everyone ... CD
Fontana/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
Great work from this cool European sextet – a vocal group that features three gals and three guys – or pals, as their name might indicate!

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

All you need is love – that, and some great vocals and backings as well!

Anita KerrSlightly Baroque (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Anita Kerr and her singers take on the baroque pop sound of the late 60s – working here in a way that mixes their smoother vocals with more complicated arrangements and some nice use of electric harpsichord! The approach isn't as over the top baroque as other albums like this – thanks ... (Vocalists, Now Sound) read more CD

A totally wonderful little record that's every bit as sexy as you might guess from the cover – and which also has some of the groovy French elements you might expect from the title!

James LastDancing A GoGo (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $23.99
Very groovy instrumental work from the great James Last – a cool cat who was Germany's answer to Herb Alpert or Al Hirt during the 60s! Like Herb or Al, the style here is rooted in jazz, but takes off in lots more groovy colors – a bouncy, upbeat, very breezy sound that made Last the ... read more CD
