Reach Out

LP (Item 14550) A&M, 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-
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 Is Not A Home", "Bond Street", "Reach Out For Me", "Are You There", "Windows Of The World" – but you may not know the arrangements, which are superb – quite different than the more famous vocal versions you've probably heard ad infinitum, and recorded at a level that brings a whole new magic and majesty to 60s pop! An essential record for any fan of all things groovy – and an album of new pleasures each time we hear it!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Make It Easy On Yourself
A&M, 1969. Near Mint-
Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it!

Burt Bacharach

Saturday Sunshine
Kapp, 1973. Near Mint-
Cool repackaging of some of Burt's great work for Kapp from the 60's. The album, which has a cover that makes him look like a statue at a piano in a forest, was put together for the Abbott pharmaceutical company as a promotion for their drug Placidyl! A wild package, and a great batch of cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Baja Marimba Band

Baja Marimba Band
A&M, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
After the huge success of Herb Albert's Tijuana Brass albums, A&M got vibist Julius Wechter (ex-Martin Denny) to come up with a similar ensemble in the Baja Marimba Band. The group has a goofy pseudo Mexican sound – but is really just a bunch of LA studio guys goofing it up on pop tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Early 70s. Very Good+
Walter Carlos (now Wendy) performs electronic versions of many classics on the Moog. If nothing else, this is an interesting period piece, though on a certain level we're quite fond of it, oth in it's performance and it's motivation. Moogy takes of Monteverdi's "Orfeo" suite, several ... LP, Vinyl record album

Airport Love Theme
Decca, 1970. Sealed
Studio guitarist who helped design a number of electric guitars for the Danelectro company, and invented many guitar effect pedals of his own – long before you could just plug that 'sound' into your studio computer!

Les Baxter

Sounds Of Adventure
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+ 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

Yma Sumac

Mambo!
Capitol, 1954. Near Mint-
Quite possibly our favorite album ever by the enigmatic Yma Sumac – thanks to some lively arrangements by Billy May, who gives the set a swinging jazzy groove! As you might guess from the cover, the style here is more in a Latin jazz mode than some of Yma's other more ethereal work – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 50s. Near Mint-
The notes say that the album is "the rare plum of authenticity". We don't know if we'd go that far, but we can tell you that the record features Yma performing songs of the legendary Jivaro headhunters! Supposedly, Yma learned them in her "South American jungle-home", but we ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Cop Show Themes
RCA, 1976. Very Good
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove!
