Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
The Japanese really loved the tenor sax instrumental style a lot longer than most listeners in the US – and kept on recording for years in modes that were made famous in the 50s by artists like Plas Johnson or Sam "The Man" Taylor! Here, on a record from 1969, Kaoru Akimoto blows ... read more CD

Warren BarkerMusic Of Desire – The Exotic Rhythms Of Warren Barker ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful work from Warren Barker – one of the lesser-known exotica talents at the start of the 60s – but only because he was also working in a variety of other instrumental modes at the time! Barker's charts are always nicely playful – and that approach also holds true here ... read more CD

Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats.

Really wonderful sounds from an overlooked sound library genius – and an artist who's also a great one to turn to if you want to hear the groovier side of the spectrum too!
