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


Columbia, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Wonderful stuff – way more than just an easy instrumental album, and a great batch of exotic tunes with lots of jazzy touches! There's enough of the Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman influence here – but Rex and group take the sound a lot further, by playing like a true small combo, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/Captain High (Germany), 1959. New Copy (reissue)
One of our favorite albums ever from the mighty Les Baxter – and one of the few from his Capitol years that really has a strong jazz component! The approach here is similar to Les' classic African Jazz set – with lots of rootsy percussion at the core, maybe more than usual for Baxter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Page & His Paradise Music

Pacific Paradise
Subliminal Sounds (Sweden), 1940s/1950s. New Copy
A fantastic tribute to the enigmatic Paul Page – an exotic music genius from the west coast scene of the postwar years – but one who never reached the fame of bigger names like Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, or Webley Edwards! Page spent his later years in Hawaii, and right from the start ... CD

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
Herb Alpert, 2018. New Copy Gatefold
Herb Alpert remakes himself again – taking all the best tunes from his classic years on A&M records, then fitting them to contemporary grooves – all at a level that's a bit like some of the Verve Remixed projects from years back, but even better! These aren't remixes, but new ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy
Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy
Two fantastic albums from Hugo Montenegro – back to back on a single CD! Hugo In Wonder-Land is one of Hugo Montenegro's best moog albums – and a killer batch of tracks written by Stevie Wonder – hence the title! Hugo and crew go to town with a host of electric keyboards – ... CD

Yuzo Hayashi & Salon 68

Memory Of Monica Vitti
April/Beatball (Korea), 2005. New Copy
A groovy groovy little set that's as sexy as the Monica Vitti it remembers! The album was recorded recently, but has a fab 60s sound comprised of electric harpsichord, organ, scatting vocals, and a breezy, bossa-styled groove – all done without any kitsch or fakery, and coming across with a ... CD

Frank Chacksfield

All Time Top TV Themes
Phase 4/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1966. New Copy
A sweet little take on the TV theme world of the 60s – served up by Brit maestro Frank Chacksfield at a level that's maybe a little bit more groovy than some of his other records from the time! Frank's still working with a very full orchestra, but the songs themselves have an inherently cool ... CD
Herb Alpert, 2018. New Copy
Herb Alpert remakes himself again – taking all the best tunes from his classic years on A&M records, then fitting them to contemporary grooves – all at a level that's a bit like some of the Verve Remixed projects from years back, but even better! These aren't remixes, but new ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy
Gentle solo piano from Japan – a set that recalls older easy instrumental albums of the 60s and 70s, even though it was recorded in more recent years! The sole instrumentation here is piano, recorded in a lushly echoey style that has the same softly captivating vibe of later albums by ... CD

Martin Denny

Best Of Martin Denny
Liberty, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good
Not really "the best", but a pretty nice collection of Denny's early work for Liberty – with a groovy photo on the back that shows him working with the group in action, beating on a big conga, while the rest of the band plays exotic percussion! Titles include "The Enchanted ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Hyman

Age Of Electronicus
Command, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Nice one! This is one of Dick Hyman's most fantastic LPs, and the one that includes some of his best moogy playing. With the very funky club cut "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", plus "Both Sides Now", "Kolumbo", "Time Is Tight", and "Green Onions". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1960s. Very Good Gatefold
Light mellow Verve-y instrumental orchestral stuff, featuring Don Costa's versions of contemporary pop stuff, like "Heroes & Villains", "All You Need Is Love", "Ode To Billie Jo". and "Valley of the Dolls". Not totally jazzy, but a nice package of soft ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andre Popp

Le Coeur En Fete
AZ/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. Near Mint- (reissue)
Easily one of the most trippy albums ever from Andre Popp – a French arranger who's usually best known for his lounge recordings of the 50s and 60s – but who's working here in a more psych-inspired mode that's right up there with the work of Jean Claude Vannier and Michel Colombier! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Command, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Tartare, 1958. Very Good
A great takeoff on the late 50s idea of "music for . . . " – the idea that a record could be recorded for some sort of specific need or audience! The backings are by Henry Mancini, but the overall conception is clearly the work of Irving Taylor – who comes up with some great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wailers

Tall Cool One
Imperial, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Hard rockin instrumentals from this Northwest combo who caused the scene to blow up large back in the 60s! Tracks are short and hard – with a darker edge that tunes of the type coming out of CA at the time. Titles include "Tall Cool One", "Frenszy", "Shake Down" ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1967. Very Good
This is our favorite of all Esquivel albums – both because some of the electronic effects are the most advanced, and because it was recorded late enough to feature some great renditions of Bossa Nova material, like "Aqua de Beber" and "Surfboard". The sound is very groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Varese, 1982. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1961. Very Good-
More groovy drag racing stuff, recorded as part of Riverside's Hot Rod series in the early 60's. The record contains highlights from the 1961 Sebring 12-hour endurance race. There doesn't seem to be that much happening in the way of tragedies or accidents, but the record's got lots of cool car ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Gregory Orchestra

TV's Greatest Detective Hits
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Excellent work from Brit easy bandleader John Gregory – an assortment of 70s police and crime themes, played by a big band with a nice soundtrack-y finish! Nearly all the tunes are uptempo, and the feel of the record is very much in the same vein as Henry Mancini's Cop Show Themes album ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

Sounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used
Sounds like Herb Alpert, but it grooves in ways that we hardly expected – playful, creative, and filled with so many more rhythms than just the Tijuana groove we might have thought! There's a real deepening sense of instrumental pop going on here – as Herb explores some of the darker ... CD

Alshire/Scamp, Late 60s. Used
An absolute treasure of tripped-out, space age symphonic funk from 101 Strings! On this set the undocumented group of session players run through a whole bunch of spacey cuts, complete with fuzzed out electric guitar and sitar, weird period electronics, and more than a few funky drum breaks. It's ... CD
CBS, Late 60s. Used
... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1962/1963. Used
How sweet it is! There's a dose of trad jazz inside the moody mix of material on Champagne, Candelight & Kisses – with arrangements are handled by George Williams. That said, there's plenty of mood lit romantic grandeur in the mix. Grandly-accented, yet intimately charming work. ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, Mid 50s. Used
Ah to be a suitor in the 50s – when all you needed was a record like this to close the deal with a lovely lass! The album's one of Jackie Gleason's finest – and a perfect demonstration of the lush, romantic backings that he did so well for Capitol during the decade – an approach ... CD
