✨✧ Yma SumacMambo! ... LP
Capitol, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly our favorite album ever by the enigmatic Yma Sumac – thanks to some lively arrangements by Billy May, who gives the set a swinging jazzy groove! As you might guess from the cover, the style here is more in a Latin jazz mode than some of Yma's other more ethereal work – and that style turns out to be a wonderful fit for Sumac's incredible vocals – creating a batch of driving tunes that swing nicely, yet still have a spooky exotic sound on the top! Titles include "Bo Mambo", "Taki Rari", "Goomba Boomba", "Malambo No 1", and "Five Bottles Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Abridged 80s pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Yma SumacUltimate Yma Sumac Collection ... CD
Capitol, 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just an ultimate collection – as the package not only includes some of Yma Sumac's best numbers for Capitol Records, but also features some previously unreleased numbers! These extra tracks should be plenty appealing to even the staunchest of Sumac completists – and they stand nicely alongside more familiar numbers done in Yma's wonderful blend of South American roots, mid century easy, and other-worldly vocals! Arrangements are mostly by Moises Vivanco – who wrote most of the tracks too – and previously unreleased titles include "Negrito Filomino", "Huyano", and Inca Waltz" – alongside 18 more numbers that inlcude "La Molina", "Virgenes Del Sol", "Llorca Corazon", "Ataypura", "Bo Mambo", "Tumpa", "Taki Rari", and "Wanka".

Leda Annest/Phil MoorePortrait Of Leda ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A wonderfully moody session from the late 50s – one that features the eerie vocals of Leda Annest over the orchestrations of Phil Moore! Leda's got a haunting voice that's somewhere in the range of Yma Sumac, but a bit less dramatic – more kind of a wordless instrument, used amidst the orchestrations in broad washes of color and tone. Moore scored the entire piece for Leda's voice – an extended 3 part suite that runs through series of dark, jazz, and playful moods – all featuring some incredible vocals by Leda! LP, Vinyl record album

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
