(€15.88 || £13.17 || ¥1843) (approx.)

Some very groovy and fairly ambitious moog takes of Beatles tracks, using moog, arp, and other cool electronic instrumentation. The lineup's mostly late Beatles stuff with a trippy feel, like "Your Mother Should Know", "Strawberry Fields", and "Penny Lane", and many of the tracks are taken in versions that mix them with other ones. The band's kind of young and hip, and the sound is better than the usual moog rock LP. Excellent Peter Max-ish gatefold with inner pictures of the band. One guy is wearing a studded denim jacket over a Speedy Gonzalez tee-shirt AND he is wearing a brass MOOG belt buckle. These guys were the real McCoy!

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.

New Fantasy
Verve, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
The great Lalo Schifrin plays piano and leads a crack group of studio players through some larger orchestral material with a nice jazzy feel!

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!

Exotic Moog
Liberty, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the few truly great Martin Denny albums from the 60s, and one that features some killer use of the moog, and a very different sound than some of Denny's other albums. The keyboards have lots of wild sounds, with chirps and flutters that would make Perry & Kingsley proud – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sounds Of Love
A/S, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
Breathy, sexy pop stuff from 101 Strings, featuring a nice remake of "Je T'Aime...Moi, Non Plus", with vocals by Bebe Bardon. Sexy gatefold package, too, and very different than their other records. More of a sexy easy pop sound than usual, with covers of "This Guy's In Love With ... LP, Vinyl record album
Electric Love
Limelight, Late 60s. Very Good+
No love better than electric love – in our opinion! The Electronic Concept Orchestra lay down their own particular breed here, with moogy versions of sexy classics like "Je T'aime... Moi Non Plus", "The Look Of Love", "Like A Lover", and "This Guy's In Love ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cha Cha de Amor
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
Dean Martin does a batch of Latiny material, with cha cha cha orchestrations by Nelson Riddle. Not straight Latin stuff, but a very different take on Dino's style, and a cool way to hear him sing – even if it's not the right side of the Atlantic. A dozen tracks in all, including "Somebo ...

Exotica Vol 2
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, ... LP, Vinyl record album
