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


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
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1970/1974. New Copy
A pair of Henry Mancini gems from 70s RCA – back to back on a single CD! Hangin Out is very cool work from Henry Mancini – and one of the key 70s albums to feature the maestro himself playing an Arp! The added electric presence of the instrument really brings a lot to the usual ... CD
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), 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Magic Beat!
Liberty/Premier, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
As the liner notes say, "The Magic Beat is not primitive or ritualistic. To the contrary, it emphasizes the more sophisticated and romantic aspects of rhythmic sorcery." We won't say more, except to tell you that tracks include "Fever", "Ziganette", "Lover" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Neiges
Phase 4, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album
Shades Of Today
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Groovy pop orchestrations from one of the best bandleaders working at Verve in the late 60's. Sweet Verve sounds, with a mix of jazz, easy, and Brazilian sounds, and tracks like "Laia Ladaia", "Cinnamon & Clove", "The Look of Love", "Arrasto", and "B ... LP, Vinyl record album
Poe For Moderns
RCA, 1960. Near Mint-
Although Buddy Morrow's best known for his more crime-jazz and Night Train jazz work, this album's got him sounding surprisingly great in a set of tracks dedicated to the work of Edgar Allen Poe! The feel of the music shifts wildly from track to track – with a few that feature Keith McKenna ... LP, Vinyl record album
Supercussion
RCA, 1963. Near Mint-
Percussion-heavy bachelor pad music from the great Dick Schory – working here with his "Percussion Pops Orchestra" – and recorded with RCA's legendary Dynagroove sound! The music is plenty darn dynamic – and titles include "Krazy Kwilt", "The Brush ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solid Gold Guitar
United Artists, 1962. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
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
RCA, 1973. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album
Electrodynamics
Command, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold
Not his most out there record, but filled with lots of nice little tracks on the Lowrey Organ. Includes a version of "Mack the Knife" that really swings, plus "Big Ben Bossa" and lots of standards, like "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", 'Fly Me To The Moon" and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Everybody Cha Cha!
RCA/Camden, Late 50s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI/MFP (UK), 1978. Near Mint-
Nick Ingman's the arranger on Close Encounters – and helps give the record a disco vibe that's quite different than the usual sci fi set – a groove that clearly stems from Ingman's great sound library work of the 70s – touched here with plenty of clubby rhythms and some especially ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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, 1958. Very Good+

Taylor-Made Moog
Cozy, Late 60s. Very Good+
The moog is turned to a number of standards and evergreens, in this set that's mostly just moog with effects, and not a lot of other instrumentation. Tracks include "Just A Gigolo", "Easy To Love", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", and Taylor's own "Synamoog". ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1950s. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
The great arranger in one of his grooviest settings – a very jazzy album that features trombone from Milt Bernhart and Bob Enevoldsen, guitar from Barney Kessel, percussion from Larry Bunker, drums from Shelly Manne, and trumpe from Don Fagerquist! Marshall leads and whistles – in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good-
Early work from Yma Sumac – with that moody mix of other worldly vocals and semi-Latin instrumentation that made her a popular one with the early exotic crowd. Yma runs up and down the vocal scale, while Moises Vivanco leads the band in a set of crashing dramatic orchestrations with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drum Discotheque

Imperial, Late 50s. Near Mint-

Buddy Fite
Cyclone, Early 60s. Very Good-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Magic
Phase 4/London, 1976. Near Mint-
Amazing work from Stanley Black – honest! The album's far funkier and far more dynamic than most of Stanley's other albums in the past – and is a sweet electric 70s session with plenty of elements you'd expect to find in some of the Brit Easy or sound library albums of the time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mr Music
London, 1966. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Trax/DCC, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used
... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used
A lot more brash and bold than you might guess from the title – not just sleepy seduction music, but a batch of really dynamic tunes that will really push the limits of your hi-fi! Most numbers here are instrumental, although some of them have some occasional vocal refrains in the mix – ... CD
Space Age Soul
Sequel (UK), 1966. Used
Very groovy compilation of John Schroeder's cool Now Sound stuff from the late 60's. Recorded in the UK, with a sound that's surprisingly funky (in the Sound Gallery sort of way) this is an excellent batch of 21 tracks that features some very groovy sounds throughout, including originals like ... CD
Futura
RCA (Spain), 1961. Used
One of the best of RCA's Stereo Action series! Bernie Green leads his orchestra through a set of material that tries to answer the question "What will pop music sound like in 1970?" (keep in mind that this is 1961) – and a number of the tracks feature a "guitar orchestra" ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold
A much-needed look at the untapped musical legacy of Eden Ahbez – the west coast mystic who's best remembered for delivering the song "Nature Boy" to Nat King Cole (legendarily walking in barefooted during a recording session!) – but who also made a range of other great music ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jungle Jazz
Capitol, Late 50s. Used
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
