Mexican Joe & Other Favorites

LP (Item 1392) RCA/Camden, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

Leo Addeo directed this group of Mariba Tijuana stuff, with a fake Latin feel, and tracks like "Jungle Drums", "My Shawl", and the groovy "Mexican Joe".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Turquoise label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Sounds Unlimited
RCA, 1963. Very Good+
Soaring sounds from RCA maestro Marty Gold – maybe not the totally unlimited record you might expect from the title, but definitely a key 60s entry in the genre of bachelor pad hi fi records!

RCA, 1956. Very Good+
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!

Mancini '67
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
Henry Mancini in 1967 – a time when he was definitely at the height of his powers, as you'll hear on this sweet set of big band recordings! The format here is much more jazz-based than some of Hank's soundtracks from the time – played with a great group of west coast musicians who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marty Gold & His Orchestra

Sticks & Bones
RCA, 1959. Near Mint-
Sticks & Bones – percussion and trombones – a great little combination in the hands of hi-fi arranger Marty Gold!

Warm Shade Of Ivory
RCA, 1969. Near Mint-
Lovely late nite Mancini! The album has Mr. M's tinkling piano set amidst dark moody arrangements that bank the piano in warm washes of strings and light lilting rhythms – all moving at a slow somber pace that's perfect for a summer night with the lights down low, the windows open, relaxing ...

Light, Early 70s. Very Good-
Man, somebody at the Light label had to have been smoking something behind all those bibles – because this album, like some of the other groovy ones on the label, has a great sound to it that's nothing like some of their mostly religious records! The album's a mostly-moog affair – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Latin Village
Liberty, 1964. Very Good-
Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin here – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely augmented by some additional instrumentation! There's some traces here of the shift in production for instrumental music from the time – a bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
