Morty CraftWorld Of Percussion ... LP
Warwick, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A pretty darn nice record, and one that's trying for sort of an Esquivel singing strings approach – with orchestrations that begin in a fairly standard mode, then swing out with these wild riffs on the string section that kind of get you in the gut and make the hair on your neck stand up! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Crewe/The GlitterhouseBarbarella ... LP
Dyno Voice, 1968. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the most insanely wonderful soundtracks from the late 60s – filled with weird instrumental touches and sublimely groovy vocals that really match the mad spirit of the film! Although Bob Crewe's best known for his work as a producer for bigger names in the 60s, he really shines here on ... (Soundtracks, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Xavier CugatBang! Bang! ... LP
Decca, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A real turn to hipper territory for Xavier Cugat – a move away from more familiar Latin modes, and into a range of groovy sounds for the 60s! There's still a bit of the classic vamp we've come to know and love in Cugie – but the rhythms are leaner overall, and swing with some great mod ...

✨✧ Xavier CugatChile Con Cugie ... LP
RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Xavier Cugat turns his hit Latin sound to tunes from Mexico – working his way through medleys of traditional tunes, all given a late 50s zip, plus shorter numbers that work equally well in his choppy, percussive style. Titles include "Cielito Lindo", "Ay Jalisco No Te ... (Latin, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Xavier CugatCugat Cavalcade ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
One of Cugie's more popular albums – and a record that has him re-recording older hits for the hi-fi generation. There's not that much hi and fi on the record, as the groove's pretty much in the older style – but the newer recordings were done in a stereo setting, which makes for a bit ...

Dancing VoicesDancing Voices Go Latin ... LP
MGM, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
The Dancing Voices go Latin – but in ways that are often much more bossa-inflected than the usual New York groove! The maestro here is Marty Manning, who takes a mixed male/female chorus of singers, and turns them into a zippy, swinging sound – thanks to the use of 21 microphones in ...
