Best Of Martin Denny

LP (Item 41703) Liberty, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: 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 Sea", "Ruby", "Bali Hai", "China Nights", "Moonlight & Shadows", "Ebb Tide", and "Harbor Lights".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small split on the bottom seam and some 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.

Exotica Today
Liberty, 1967. Near Mint-
An album that signifies its style right from the first track – which echoes Martin Denny's classic "Quiet Village", but which then rolls into a set of sprightly arrangements from Julius Wechter – who almost brings an A&M Records vibe to the album! Tunes are mostly Denny ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Taste Of Honey
Liberty, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A great later moment from Martin Denny – a set that gave him a big 60s hit in a sweet version of "Taste of Honey"! Denny approaches the tune with all the great mellow moods that Bobby Scott intended – none of the too-fast styles of Hirt, and instead the slow-moving rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Primitiva
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
One of Martin Denny's greatest albums – thanks to some extra special added elements! For the record, Denny's classic quartet is augmented by a wealth of odd added percussion – including gongs, cymbals, tuned logs, steel drums, chimes, and "chromatic bamboo"! All of these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Quiet Village
Liberty, Late 50s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tibetan Bells II
Celestial Harmonies, 1981. Near Mint-
Tibetan bells – what else did you expect? Played by a couple of phonies, but still with a nice sound that's very good if you want to turn on and drop out. Titles include "Journey To End", "Skybells II", and "Astral Plane". Get celestial, baby! LP, Vinyl record album

Laurindo Almeida

Acapulco '22
Tower, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Excellent work from Laurindo – a truly wonderful album, played with small combo backing, which gives the set a jazzier feel than usual! Players include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Bob Cooper on tenor, Howard Roberts on guitar, and Shelly Manne, Milt Holland, and Chico Guerro on percussion – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hugo Montenegro

Colours Of Love
RCA, 1970. Sealed
Before he started getting funky with the moog, Hugo Montenegro was doing some very groovy stuff with large vocal arrangements. This album's one of his most perfectly realized in that vein, and features some great tracks that rework hip late 60s pop tracks into spacey vocal numbers sung by a mixed ... LP, Vinyl record album
