Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Les BaxterJungle Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Les BaxterKaleidoscope ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99

Capitol, 1957. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A dreamy exploration of south sea ideals from the great Les Baxter – a set that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of his more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself!

Capitol, 1952. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of exotica! Ritual Of The Savage is one of those must-have albums from the 50s – a super-huge record upon its initial release, and an album that pushed the genre of exotica far further than most others at the time!

Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... 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!

Capitol, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
We're not exactly sure what "riff jazz" is, but we can definitely say that the album's one of Jackie Gleason's jazziest from the 50s – a really hard-hitting affair that gets past the sleepier arrangements of other records, and makes great use of breakout solo work from Jimmy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie GleasonTawny (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A serious suite of music from Jackie Gleason – his extended "Tawny" suite on side one of the record, a lush, loving portrait of an imaginary girl!

Plas JohnsonThis Must Be The Plas! ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A gem of a session from tenorman Plas Johnson – recorded for Capitol with small group backing that includes organ, piano, vibes, and a bit of guitar – all grooving in a mode that's much more suited to Johnson's deeply riffing style than the easy arrangements of much of his other work. ...

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Goofy "18th Century" jazziness, played by a tight west coast studio sextet that features Shelly Mann, Milt Raskin, Harry Klee, and Jack Marshall on guitar.

Mighty Accordion BandThey Said It Couldn't Be Done ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Goofy accordion pop stuff, with a cover that has a gorilla holding the accordion and playing it in a number of different positions. We're assuming that the chimp doesn't play on the record, mostly because the playing's pretty skillful and peppy, especially on tracks like "Holiday for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Robert Mitchum singing calypso? Stranger things have happened, sure – and it's not so surprising when you read that Mitchum was actually a huge devotee of the music, and took his work in the genre very seriously.

Capitol, 1961. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Sweetly cascading strings from Nelson Riddle – in a style that's quite different from his work with Frank Sinatra!
