Les BaxterSadismo ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1967. Used ... $14.99
A wonderful soundtrack for a very weird film – a late 60s documentary on torture around the world, set to some really beautiful music by exotica maestro Les Baxter! The styles here are right up there with Baxter's classic late 50s material for Capitol – a beautiful blend of spare orchestrations and earthy instrumentation – used in ways that are extremely evocative, even without the images on the screen – with this beautiful undercurrent of sadness that almost makes us wonder if Les was offering a musical comment on the film project itself! There's some beautiful wordless vocals at a few points (Bas Sheba, perhaps?) – and the album's a lost treasure that's a must not just for any fan of exotica, but for 60s soundtrack enthusiasts as well. Titles include "The Dark Corners Of This Sick World", "A Catalog Of Cruelty", "The Pain In Spain", "Blues For Sadismos", "Erotica Exotica", "Tokyo After Dark", "Dog's World", and "Drugs That Turn Men Into Slaves".

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinGreat Escape – Deluxe Edition ... CD
MGM/Varese, 1963. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice tune! The groovy main theme to this one far outlived the film, and showed up all over the place in the 60s – on instrumental theme records, TV spoofs, and other oddball sources. The rest of the score's pretty great, too – and features some compelling orchestrations by Bernstein, who's working at his hardest here to top him work on the Bridge On The River Kwai. Some tracks reprise the theme, and others have more of a dramatic sound. Titles include "On The Road", "Cooler & Mole", "Blythe", "Discovery", "Premature Plans", and "The Chase". CD

✨✧ Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". CD

✨✧ Andre PrevinSubterraneans ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beat-era film classic – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel The Subterraneans! Previn's working here in a mode that's sometimes lush and emotive, but often more upbeat and jazzy – and performed by a host of great jazz players that include Gerry Mulligan, Carmen McRae, Dave Bailey, Russ Freeman, Art Farmer, Art Pepper, and Jack Sheldon! There's loads of numbers that have a dark, moody finish – mixing together jazz soloing and strings, in a style that really gets at some of the sadness of the story. The CD features the full original soundtrack album – 12 tracks that include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue" – plus a bonus 12 tracks from the film that include "Leo In Bar", "Source No 2", "Leo & Mardou", "Red Drum Blues", "Roxanne At Ariel's", and "Togetherness".

✨✧ Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the smartest moves Phil Woods ever made was to move to Paris in 1968 and pick up a European rhythm section that featured George Gruntz, Henri Texier, and Daniel Humair. At the time, the idea of a European rhythm section might have been considered suicide by some folks – but for Woods, it was a liberating move that allowed him to expand his sound tremendously. With the help of these three players – all loose modernists who still knew how to swing – Woods was able to craft some incredible tunes, long flowing numbers that featured his amazing tone stretching out in kind of a post-Coltrane sort of mode. This live set is one of the group's best recordings, and features extended versions of tracks that include "Capricci Cavaleschi", "I Remember Bird", "Ad Infinitum", and "Riot". CD
