XLounge, exotica, bachelor pad, instrumental pop, and Hi-Fi gems!


RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1968/1972. New Copy
A pair of RCA Records gems from Hugo Montenegro – back to back on a single CD! First up is Theme From The Godfather – a sweet 70s update of the moogy groovy that Hugo Montenegro first started crafting in the 60s! The album's got both moog and Arp – the latter of which brings in ... CD

Lucifer (Mort Garson)

Black Mass (pink vinyl pressing)
Uni/Sacred Bones, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the wildest records ever cut by moog master Mort Garson – a project that gives its spirit away by the Lucifer name that Mort chose for the project! The set's not entirely a black mass – ala Coven – but still has a feel that's very spooky and dark – not a total ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A really cool side of work from the enigmatic Raymond Scott – the legendary midcentury figure who did a wealth of creative work in jazz, soundtrack, and electronic music fields! Turns out, Scott also recorded a heck of a lot of commercials in his studio – all in ways that embrace all ... CD
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
The moog wizard Hugo Montenegro takes on the music of Stevie Wonder – in a blend that maybe makes the record one of the coolest that the studio maestro ever recorded! Hugo had already proven that he could groove in the 60s, and he picked up the moog at the end of the decade and started ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warren Baker with Paul Tanner & Andre Montero

Music For Heavenly Bodies
Omega/Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
There's two sorts of heavenly bodies on the cover – but the real charms of the record lie inside, as the set's overflowing with incredible early theremin recordings! The album features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dot/Pleasure For Music, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best-remembered albums from the moog pop generation – a record that's definitely a cut above the rest, thanks to the top-shelf talents of pianist Mike Melvoin! Melvoin is a name you'll recognize from countless other great LA sessions of the 60s – and Mike was always able to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/El (UK), 1950s. New Copy 3CD
A huge run of records from Yma Sumac – presented here in a box that collects just about everything she recorded for Capitol Records in the 50s! First up is Voice Of The Xtaby – legendary vocal work from the postwar years – some of the earliest recordings from the enigmatic Yma ... CD
Sacred Bones, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous collection of work from moog maestro Mort Garson – a name you might know from projects like the Wozard Of Iz, Lucifer, or Ataraxia – stepping out here on some much more obscure recordings, including some that appear here for the first time ever! Garson was easily one of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mort Garson

Didn't You Hear
Sacred Bones, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of the rarest albums ever from the legendary Mort Garson – an all-electronic film score, one that was originally only available on record in the lobby of a Seattle theater that was showing the film! The tracks are shorter than on some of Garson's more commercial projects of the time, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hugo Montenegro

Moog Power
RCA/Get On Down, 1969. New Copy
CD...$6.99 14.98
A groovy moogy classic! This was one of the first records to apply the moog sound in a pop idiom in a major way – and boy, is it a resounding success with us! Hugo Montenegro scores a number of pop tracks and originals in the same cool jazzy style that he used on his best 60's soundtracks, ... CD
Audio Fidelity/Charly (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A very cool little record – a limited 12" single that features the sublime moog groover "Popcorn" – a tune that was cut famously by Hot Butter in the early 70s, but which is served up here in the original version by its creator, moog maestro Gershon Kingsley – a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Kapp, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Essential compilation of Burt's original recordings on Kapp, from the mid 60's. The production's got vocal choruses, large orchestrations, and lots of cool tinkly piano – and the groove is 100% Bacharach, with lesser-known versions of tracks that were bit hits for other pop stars. A fair ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Wright

Gold On Silk
Everest, 1959. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album

Hagood Hardy

Homecoming
Capitol, 1975. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Ferrante & Teicher

Heavenly Sounds In Hi Fi
ABC, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the best non-Winchester albums from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – not as crazy as some of their work, but still with some good elements of the piano trickery that made them famous. Titles include "Out Of This World", "East Of The Sun", "Over The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edmundo Ros

Hollywood Cha Cha Cha
London, 1959. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album

Si Zentner

Waltz In Jazz Time
Liberty, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A very swinging album from trombonist Si Zentner – done in a big band style, but with plenty of groovy touches that show the 60s period of the recordings! Si gets some great help on the records from Bob Florence – an arranger who really knows how to make a bigger band swing with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Command, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
Dick Hyman plays some groovy instrumentals on the Lowery Organ, with a nice light sound that's different from the kind of stuff you'll hear on a Hammond B-3. Titles include "Goldfinger", "Love Me Do", "It Kinda Makes Yuh Wonder", "Discotheque Doll", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Quiet Village
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Blues & The Beat
RCA, 1960. Very Good-
This is a pretty jazzy record compared to the usual Mancini soundtrack-type stuff. It's mostly mellow the whole way through and has some very nice moments due to the quality of the playing. His orchestra includes such folks as Pete Condoli on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Johnny Williams on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

All Star Drummers

Cats Go Wild
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+
"America's Greatest Drummers" in a percussion spectacular with a lot of loud exotic sounding tracks like "Boka Butu", "Ja Ki Lin", "Noma", and "Bambu". I don't know if we'd use the word "greatest" in describing the drummers – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint-
"Eastern" lounge artist Tak Shindo hits the Old West, and lays down a set of exotic versions of Western hits like "Jingle, Jangle, Jingle", "Tumblin Tumbleweed", "I'm An Old Cowhand", and "High Noon". Recorded on 35mm film, with some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mystic Moods

Summer Moods
Bainbridge, 1985. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach

Make It Easy On Yourself
A&M, 1969. Very Good
Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Leahy

Tabasco & Trumpets
Tower, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Tijuana Brass sound-a-like, but with a Latin-y feel of its own! Includes the cuts "Life", "Slinky", "Manhattan Spiritual" and others. Tabasco Brand Hot Sauce sponsored this record! LP, Vinyl record album

Reg Wilson

88 Keys And A Girl
United Artists, 1969. Near Mint-
A very cool record! This is one of our favorite "instrument & a voice" LPs, with lots of great jazzy piano cuts that feature a wordless female vocal lilting over some nice soulful keyboards. Includes a great cut called "To Make it Right", which has a sort of Tribe Called ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1955. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Danny Schloss

Dreams & Illusions
Verve/Forecast, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A very groovy record – sort of a mix of 60s pop, eastern trippiness, and bits of psyche jazz that you might hear on other albums on Verve at the time! Danny's vocals aren't too bad – and on the best cuts, he's got a slightly broken style of singing that breathes a bit of honesty into ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+
A fairly sincere collection of instrumental versions of tracks from Sgt Pepper's, performed by the great Brit Easy bandleader Peter Knight, who worked with Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield, and Dee Dee Warwick. The album's a lot less camp than you'd expect, and Knight does a good job of coming up ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rick Powell

Celebration Of Praise
New Dawn, 1980. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Sherman & His Pachanga-Charanga Kings

Viva La Pachanga
Kapp, 1961. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Mystic Moods Orchestra

Emotions (Original Master Recording)
Mobile Fidelity/Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the best early albums from the Mystic Moods – largely because it really ups the use of sound effects that was begun on the group's first album. The record is a smooth blend of train sounds, beach sounds, night sounds, and a million other weird noises – all filtered through late ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sandy Nelson

Boogaloo Beat
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+
Groovy stuff from Sandy Nelson – one of his best albums ever! Despite the title, this isn't exactly the Latin soul adventure you might think – but it is a nice batch of drum-heavy instrumentals, with a good soul boogaloo beat to them. The best tracks are the ones with "boogaloo&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-

Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+
UA makes the film copyright cash register jingle again on this second set of tracks from their James Bond films, performed by other artists in the catalog. Tracks include "Thunderball" & "Underwater Chase" by Al Caiola, "007" & "The Golden Horn" by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fontana, 1960s. Very Good+
Nice little bit of Brit easy jazziness. Features a few Dankworth originals, plus versions of "African Waltz", "Skyliner", and "Ja Da". Recorded in "complex multi-track stereo" to get that "Living Presence Stereo" sound! LP, Vinyl record album
Vox, Mid 50s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1970. Sealed
Includes selections by The Living Strings, Melachrino Strings & Orchestra, Living Brass, Bob Armstrong, Mel Lewis, Malcolm Dodds, and Living Jazz. LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1967. Sealed
Here's What's Happening offers up a take on the sound of the young, served up by easy instrumental maestro Floyd Cramer! The mix of modes is surprisingly great – as the flowing, echoey Cramer piano turns towards tunes from some of the hipper corners of the 60s – rock and pop bits that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, 1960s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Creed Taylor Orchestra

Shock – Music In Hi Fi
ABC, 1958. Very Good
Very cool work from Creed Taylor – material cut when he was still a bandleader, and hadn't yet evolved into the role of super-producer! The session's a long way from the CTI sound of the 70s – and instead has Creed playing some very spooky stuff – compositions by Kenyon Hopkins ... LP, Vinyl record album
