David McCallum (with David Axelrod)

Music – A Bit More Of Me (LP sleeve edition)
Capitol/Get On Down, Late 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 14.98
Very groovy stuff from the Capitol heyday of the late 60s! The record ostensibly gives TV star (from "U.N.C.L.E.") David McCallum a chance to conduct a set of groovy instrumentals – but David Axelrod produced the album, and HB Barnum did some of the arrangements in the same groovy ... CD
Kapp/Elemental (Spain), 1965. New Copy
A great batch of early work from Burt Bacharach – one of the first albums to be issued under his own name, and proof that Mr B was head and shoulders above most of the other arrangers and composers of his time! At some level, the style here is a bit more traditional than some of Burt's later ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1969. New Copy
CD...$6.99 16.99
A fantastic moog-based take on the music from Hair – a wonderful confluence of two of the grooviest musical trends of the late 60s! Mort Garson had his hand in plenty of other great moog-related projects from the period – like the Wozard Of Iz, the Lucifer/Black Mass album, and ... CD

Spotnicks/Russ Garcia/Ron Goodwin

Out Of This World (Music In Orbit/Fantastica)
El (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Space age pop galore – from a trio of very groovy sources! The Spotnicks start out the set with three cool guitar instrumentals – "Telstar", "Moonshot", and "Rocket Man" – done in their great blend of Ventures guitar modes and offbeat Joe Meek ... CD

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

Burt Bacharach

Reach Out
A&M/Elemental (Spain), 1967. New Copy
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... CD

Assembled Multitude

Assembled Multitude
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy
CD...$6.99 11.98
One of the stranger albums on Atlantic at the start of the 70s – but a surprising hit as well! The group are a batch of Philly studio players who serve up instrumental versions of late 60s rock numbers, plus some of their own bits – all recording at the Sigma Sound studios, with ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
Very groovy LP of bongo-oriented tracks conducted by Les Baxter for "young America" (or so says the label!) The overall feel is nice and jazzy, and the tracks have a nice snapping bongo sound. Tracks include "Reverberasia", "Bustin the Bongos", "Brazilian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Mauriat

Blooming Hits
Philips, 1967. Near Mint-
Classic French instrumental pop from the late 60's, by the artist who became one of the country's biggest exports! Apart from Mauriat's hit version of "Love Is Blue (L'amour Est Bleu)", the album also includes tracks like "Somethin' Stupid", "Penny Lane", "Puppet ... 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

New Band
Liberty, Mid 60s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album

Perrey-Kingsley

In Sound From Way Out
Vanguard, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of the moogiest records of all time – a legendary LP of "electronic pop music of the future" – sourced and claimed as an influence by everyone from Stereolab to the Beastie Boys! The legendary team of Gershon Kingsley and Jean-Jaques Perry are working here in early tape ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Strange

In The Mexican Bag
GNP/Crescendo, 1966. Very Good+
Includes a nice version of "These Boots Are Made For Walking" – and a back cover endorsement from Nancy Sinatra! LP, Vinyl record album

Rafael Mendez & Laurindo Almeida

Together
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Copper Plated Integrated Circuit

Plugged In Pop
Command, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Very cool moog album with a Perry-Kingsley feel. That is, it's got sort of a sharp electronic sound, but with grooviness underneath that keeps the whole thing going along at a jaunty pace. At times, the electronic sounds will break down into a bunch of noise, and then jump into a swingin' poppy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Thompson

Mmm Nice!
RCA, 1960. Very Good+
Chorus vocals and jazzy orchestrations – a real standout from the classic HiFi years at RCA, and the kind of a set that makes us say "Mmmmm . . . Nice!" The record's the only one we've ever seen by Bob Thompson, but it's a real doozy – a set that blends together mostly female ... LP, Vinyl record album

Waikikis

Midnight Luau
Kapp, 1960s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Leo Diamond's Orchestra

Exciting Sounds From Romantic Places
ABC, Mid 60s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album

Norrie Paramor

Moods
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

Soul Of The Drums
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the rarest of all Les Baxter albums – and one of the best! The record was cut after Les' early 60s move to Reprise – but it's still very much in the vein of his Capitol exotic work, which is more than we can say for some of his other Reprise sessions. There's a strong emphasis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

Teen Drums
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
One of Les Baxter's best for Capitol! Forget the "teen" in the title, because this is a super-hip album filled with great percussion tracks. More than a few of the numbers have a Latiny groove – mixing strong exotica scoring with rawer percussion than usual, and some occasional ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1952. Very Good
A masterpiece of exotica! Ritual Of The Savage is one of those must-have albums from the 50s – a super-huge record upon its initial release, and an album that pushed the genre of exotica far further than most others at the time! Before this record, most attempts at exotica were simple ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Warren Barker

Warren Barker Is In
Warner, 1959. Very Good+
Hip groovy loungey sounds from the guy who arranged and conducted the music to 77 Sunset Strip! Tracks have goofy names like "Cappucino", "Cafe Expresso", and "Hit The Road to Dreamland" – and the album's got a beatnik jazz feel that's very nice! 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

Henry Mancini

Mancini Touch
RCA, 1959. Very Good+
Delightful instrumentals – not as jazzy as Mancini's regular soundtrack work, but still pretty nice! The tracks are more in an easy instrumental vein – but given Hank's style, they're still pretty cool, especially as they feature work by west coast jazzmen like Shelly Manne, Victor ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1957. Very Good+
The first-ever album from Henry Mancini – and a wonderfully spooky set! The style here is quite different than most of Hank's better-known film work and instrumental hits – as the record is very moody and laidback – cut with a slow-moving, dreamy sort of darkness that's really ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1961. Very Good
One of the die-cut cover "Stereo Action" series, with a variety of film themes given a wild batchelor pad twist. Tracks include "Colonel Bogey", "Tara's Theme", "The High & The Mighty", and "Song Of The Barefoot Contessa". Not too way out, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Nero

I've Gotta Be Me
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of Peter Nero's albums that uses some really groovy moog! Includes versions of "Soulful Strut", "Rain In My Heart", "I've Gotta Be Me", "Hey Jude", and "I Love How You Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Thompson

On The Rocks
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Very cool work from Bob Thompson – a mood music maestro who worked for RCA in the same scene as Esquivel! This set's got Bob's trademark groovy blend of orchestrations and voices – and titles include "On The Rocks", "Happy Talk", "Always", "The Little ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

Sounds Of Adventure
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A 2LP set, released in the mid 60's as a "Capitol Record Club Exclusive" – and one that compiles some of Baxter's best work for the label. The inside of the cover has some good notes on Baxter's career, and the record contains many nice moments like "Dancing Diamonds", ... LP, Vinyl record album
