Yma SumacVoice of the Xtabay (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $5.99
One of the earliest Capitol albums by otherworldly singer Yma Sumac! As with Yma's other records, the album features many original tunes written by Moise Vivanco – her frequent musical collaborator at the time, and the force behind much of the stronger South American musical elements of the work. Of course, Les Baxter's also along to give the album a nice touch of early 50s exotica – making for a strange blend of Latin, easy, and otherworldly sounds that's always made the album one of Yma's most enigmatic. Titles include "Xtaby", "Wayra", "Taita Inty", "Monos", and "Tumpa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and aging.)
Also available Voice of the Xtabay (7 inch box set) ... 7-inch 16.99

Yma SumacVoice of the Xtabay (7 inch box set) ... 7-inch
Capitol, Early 50s. Near Mint- 4 x 7" box (pic cover)... $16.99
Cool box set that features 4 7" singles with all of the tracks on the original 10" release of the album. The record is one of her earliest Capitol albums, with classic arrangements by Les Baxter, of material that was written by Yma's Partner Moises Vivanco. Great stuff, and the cover has nice deep rich colors on the cover. Titles include "Xtaby", "Wayra", "Taita Inty", "Monos", and "Tumpa". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Box has some surface wear and a tear on the top edge.)

Yma SumacRecital ... CD
ESP, 1961. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Yma Sumac on ESP Records – a unexpected meeting that's given us a rare concert performance from 1961! The CD features Yma singing live in Romania – working with backings from longtime partner Moises Vivanco, on a set of tracks that mixes older Peruvian roots with some newer, jazzier modes. Sumac's vocals are wonderful – really covering an amazing range of sound, and losing little in this live setting that she had in the Capitol studios. The backings often feature a bit of strings, plus lighter instrumentation – and titles include "Fuego Sobre Los Andes", "Ataypura", "Goomba Boomba", "Cueca Chileana", "Taita Inti", and "Wambra". CD

✨✧ Yma SumacFuego Del Ande ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure albums by vocalist Yma Sumac – and one of the most compelling too! The album has Yma working in the Andean style of her earlier 10" albums for Capitol – working with Moises Vivanco on a set of tunes that have a much more traditional and almost folkloric style than some of her work with Les Baxter. Titles include "Clamor", "Dale Que Dale", "Llora Corazon", "Gallito Caliente", "La Molina", and "Flor De Canela". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has a split seam held with a piece of clear tape, splitting on the bottom seam, a light stain at the bottom, and a 3 inch tear on the front paste-on.)

Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and its wonderful cover! The album has Dick playing instruments that include electronic organs, keyboards, and ondioline – working in a "moon" oriented style that has lots of bloops and bleeps tripping over very groovy tunes, all augmented by wild wordless vocals by Mary Mayo. The whole thing's kind of like a funky Yma Sumac album, recorded on Saturn – and the whole thing's sublime, from conception, to production, to execution, and even the cover! Titles include "Moon Gas", "Space Reflex", "Maid Of the Moon", and "Desafinado". Moog is one of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me". CD features two great bonus tracks – the very funky "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" and "Kolumbo". CD
