Capitol/Now Again, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the most righteous, message-oriented albums ever from David Axelrod – and the third in his legendary trilogy of instrumental sets for Capitol Records!

One of a handful of amazing albums recorded by David Axelrod towards the end of the 60s – really stunning, genre-breaking music that was years ahead of its time – and which has only finally been getting its due in more recent decades!

Capitol/Now Again, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever by studio genius David Axelrod! The album's one of Axelrod's first on his own – cut for Capitol Records at a time when he was working with some of the label's biggest selling soul acts – like Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls – turning their ...

✨✧ Les BaxterAfrican Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
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! This one really delivers on the "jazz" promised in the title – thanks to strong tenor solos from Plas Johnson, who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterJungle Jazz (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Capitol/Captain High (Germany), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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! The approach here is similar to Les' classic African Jazz set – with lots of rootsy percussion at the core, maybe more than usual for Baxter ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterKaleidoscope ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Les Baxter still pretty much in his older sweeter mode – recorded slightly before the exotica years, but in a manner that still shows him as a very capable arranger and conductor. Titles include "Atlantis", "Tropicana", "Julie", "Cornflakes", and " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterMidnight On The Cliffs ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $2.99
Dreamy work from Les Baxter – featuring his chorus and orchestra over string-heavy arrangements that match the midnight sea setting on the cover. The work's a lot more flowery than his exotic recordings for Capitol – but it's got an insanity that we find quite appealing, especially in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterSounds Of Adventure ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A 2LP set, released in the mid 60's as a "Capitol Record Club Exclusive" – and one that compiles some of Baxter's best work for the label. The inside of the cover has some good notes on Baxter's career, and the record contains many nice moments like "Dancing Diamonds", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterTamboo! ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark album of exotica! Tamboo was cut with Les' orchestra and chorus – and it's a swirling mass of tribal drums, singing strings, and moody voices that would forever change the face of easy listening. Les' compositions are astounding – filled with all the sophsitication of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

George ChakirisWest Side Story's Dynamic George Chakiris ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
Chakiris made his big fame in the film version of West Side Story, but we've always been bigger fans of his work in Les Demoiselles De Rochefort. This album's one of many weak attempts to get his singing career in line with his matinee idol looks – and it features some of the best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jack FascinatoMusic from A Surplus Store ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A masterpiece mixture of sound effects and loungey orchestration! Wild stuff featuring "found objects" from a surplus store – like saws, whistles, sirens, and other junk – plus the great arrangements of one of Capitol's best bandleaders.

Jackie GleasonLonesome Echo ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
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! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dr Samuel J HoffmanMusic For Peace Of Mind (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the best of the early theremin records for Capitol by Dr Samuel J Hoffman – a moody mix of electronics and orchestrations, with a sound that's incredibly eerie! The tunes on the set were all written by Harry Revel – with titles alone that really get at the mood of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hollyridge StringsHollyridge Strings Play The Beach Boys Song Book Vol 2 ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
This set is from a few years later than the first Beach Boys Song Book – and as such, features a groovier sound overall! There's still plenty of strings in the mix, but the arrangements from Mort Garson and Perry Botkin also show some of the growing love of sound used by the group – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't miss this one! For years, we passed this one by, thinking it an impure version of the great jazz duo Jackie & Roy. Now, though, we realize that it's one of their masterpieces, and takes their hip vocal sound into a new dimension, with cool L.A. production from the late 60's, and some ...

Jonah JonesSwingin On Broadway ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Trumpeter Jonah Jones swings nicely with a Broadway theme – yet still manages to keep things in his charming blend of trad, swing, and some groovier elements too! The set's mostly instrumental, although Jonah sings on a few numbers with that warmly raspy voice of his – and as with most ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
McCallum's third album for Capitol – and like the first, a genius batch of instrumental tunes that's graced with the talents of HB Barnum and David Axelrod! As beathead revivalists have shown, the album would be nothing without that pair, especially Axelrod – and McCallum's really just ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mighty Accordion BandThey Said It Couldn't Be Done ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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

Yma Sumac sings chants of the Andes – and authentic or not, the sound's pretty darn great!

Capitol, 1973. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Nice stuff from Pat Williams! Although known for mostly groovy 60s stuff (ala his legendary Verve and soundtrack work), this album features Williams hitting more of a 70s jazz funk groove, with a nice electric edge. The tracks are long, and the solos are played by Tom Scott and Marvin Stamm ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A lost gem from Brian Wilson's dad! As the cover says, "The talented father of the famous Beach Boys presents instrumental interpretations of his and other compositions." Basically, Murry was getting the squeeze from Brian, and this was Murry's way of saying "hey, I can do ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
