This is a massively overlooked album! Not only is it a great late-sixties take on Exotica, but it's also got some funky grooves and nice jazzy soloing, ala Sound Gallery or Sound Spectrum material. It's almost like the Chicharrones album, by the Latin Gents, if you know that one – and tracks include "Moon Of Manakoora", "Baia", "Misirlou", and "Tico Tico". Very nice!

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.

Accent On Bamboo
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good-
Great set of "exotic" big band stuff, conducted and arranged by Tak Shindo, with, as the title says, an accent on bamboo. Tracks include "Stumbling", "For You", "One Fine Day", and "It's So Peaceful In the Country". LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good-
One of the best Hair records, and a wonderful bit of electronica perfectly in keeping with the mad talents of Mort Garson! Garson's the moogy genius behind so many classic sides of the late 60s and early 70s, and working with the great Galt MacDermot score to hair, he really goes to town – ... LP, Vinyl record album

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! The group's a big one – filled with hip players who include Clare Fischer on organ, Artie Kane on electric piano and harpsichord, Don Menza on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, Early 60s. Very Good+
It's a long way from LA to Broadway, but Martin Denny makes the trip with most of his bag still intact, and actually manages to deliver some pretty interesting versions of Broadway hits of the 1950s. The group still features Augie Colon and Julius Wechter at this point – so although the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Of The Drums
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the rarest of all Les Baxter albums – and one of the best! The record was cut after Les' early 60s move to Reprise – but it's still very much in the vein of his Capitol exotic work, which is more than we can say for some of his other Reprise sessions. There's a strong emphasis ... LP, Vinyl record album
Movin' N Groovin'
RCA, 1961. Very Good
Yes, there's lots of snoozy 3 Suns records, but this isn't one of them. Housed in a beautiful "Stereo Action" series die-cut sleeve, this LP is groovy, swingin', and very dynamic. LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good+
This one's got a hokey title and cover – but it's a great batch of groovy 60s grooves! The album's supposed to feature songs from old-timey radio shows of the 30s and 40s, but Jimmy Bowen re-casts the songs (with the help of Ernie Freeman) into these campy 60s tunes, almost like a Laugh-In ...
