Broadway '61
Capitol, 1961. Very Good
The title sort of says it all, as Les serves up straight instrumental versions of showtunes from the musicals Camelot, Wildcat, Unsinkable Molly Brown, and Tenderloin. Titles include "I Ain't Down Yet", "If Ever I Would Leave You", "Camelot", "You're Far Away ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jungle Drums
RCA, 1956. Used
A pre-exotica relic – cut just a year or two before bachelor pad music really broke big, and a very important album in helping get the whole thing started! The record's got a more serious feel than you might think – as pop classical conductor Morton Gould put together this mix of ... CD

Ole! Bossa Nova
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
Classic pop bossa material from the Capitol scene, featuring a host of groovy jazz players backing up the breezy guitar of Laurindo Almeida. Although the album's not totally authentic bossa material, it does have a nice swing to it, and is easily as pleasant as some of the Verve sides from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Switched-On Rock
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
Acid rocky moogy stuff! The record's one of those "let's do a lot of pop covers on the moog" – and it features moogy updates of 60's tunes like "Get Back", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Feelin' Groovy", "Yummy Yummy Yummy", and "Time of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
Dreamy work from Les Baxter – featuring his chorus and orchestra over string-heavy arrangements that match the midnight sea setting on the cover. The work's a lot more flowery than his exotic recordings for Capitol – but it's got an insanity that we find quite appealing, especially in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1952. 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

Music: A Part Of Me
Capitol, 1966. Very Good
The first album that Man From UNCLE David McCallum cut for Capitol – a batch of instrumental tunes that was really masterminded by arranger HB Barnum and producer David Axelrod! The record features short groovy versions of mid 60s pop tunes, plus a few instrumentals by McCallum, Barnum, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Guitar From Ipanema
Capitol (Japan), 1964. Used
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, ... CD

Electro-Sonic Orchestra
Coral, Mid 60s. Very Good
This isn't a moog record, but it should be! The record uses transducers to capture sounds directly from the instruments on the album – organ, electric bass, ondioline, cello, and violins – and the sound is totally weird, with a wobbly electronic groove that you'd swear was made by a ...

ABC, Early 60s. Sealed
Another one of their crazy LPs, which are sometimes hard to find amidst the pop stuff they normally did. This one's got them doing some originals and some standards, augmented by a tight little ensemble of three percussionists and one bassist. The added instruments drive their piano stuff – ...

Eclectic Guitar
RCA/El (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy
Incredible, indelible guitar instrumentals from the early years of Chet Atkins – later to conquer civilization with his 60s Nashville Sound – here with mid 50s guitar exotica that really is eclectic and well ahead of its time! Chet's 60s production work ranges from absolute genius, ... CD

Living Together
A&M (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Quite possibly the greatest moment ever for Burt Bacharach – and that's saying a heck of a lot, considering the greatness of all of his work! The record's a slightly-overlooked gem from Burt's 70s years – a record that steps off the compressed sophistication of his best 60s work for ... CD
