Quiet Village

LP (Item 1877) Liberty, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare percussion, rhythmic piano, and just the right amount of vibes and bird calls to give the track a really haunting feel. That approach is echoed throughout the set – with shifting instrumentation that includes celeste, bongos, marimbas, and marimbula as well! Titles include "Quiet Village", "Paradise Found", "Sake Rock", "Martinique", "Tune From Rangoon", and "Pagan Love Song".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Best Of Martin Denny
Liberty, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+
Not really "the best", but a pretty nice collection of Denny's early work for Liberty – with a groovy photo on the back that shows him working with the group in action, beating on a big conga, while the rest of the band plays exotic percussion! Titles include "The Enchanted ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sandy Nelson

Boogaloo Beat
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+
Groovy stuff from Sandy Nelson – one of his best albums ever! Despite the title, this isn't exactly the Latin soul adventure you might think – but it is a nice batch of drum-heavy instrumentals, with a good soul boogaloo beat to them. The best tracks are the ones with "boogaloo&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nelson Riddle

Bright & The Beautiful
Liberty, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Groovy album of instrumentals, conducted by Nelson Riddle for Liberty, in a style that's a lot lighter than some of his earlier instrumental LPs for Capitol. Some of the tracks have a sound that's a bit too "old-timey", but there's lots of nice ones with the kind of banking string style ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best non-Winchester albums from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – not as crazy as some of their work, but still with some good elements of the piano trickery that made them famous. Titles include "Out Of This World", "East Of The Sun", "Over The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Hyman plays some groovy instrumentals on the Lowery Organ, with a nice light sound that's different from the kind of stuff you'll hear on a Hammond B-3. Titles include "Goldfinger", "Love Me Do", "It Kinda Makes Yuh Wonder", "Discotheque Doll", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blues & The Beat
RCA, 1960. Very Good-
This is a pretty jazzy record compared to the usual Mancini soundtrack-type stuff. It's mostly mellow the whole way through and has some very nice moments due to the quality of the playing. His orchestra includes such folks as Pete Condoli on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Johnny Williams on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album
