Double Shot

LP (Item 4257) World Pacific, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A very strange chapter in Chet Baker's career – one that has him blowing the lead trumpet in World Pacific's Mariachi Brass – a group that was clearly designed as a Herb Alpert ripoff! The album's actually pretty nice, thanks to arrangements by George Tipton that sway and swing – and also bounce with a bit of a mod 60s groove. Most of the tracks are covers, and Chet's sound is a bit lost – but overall, the record's a nice one. Titles include "Agua Caliente", "Wheels", "Ring Of Fire", "Red Rubber Ball", and "But Not Today".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

A short detour in the 60s career of Chet Baker – one that we sure like a heck of a lot!

McCallum
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
The hardest to find of the David McCallum albums on Capitol – and like the others, a very nice set of moody tunes with arrangements by HB Barnum, and hip production by David Axelrod! Axelrod gets in some very nice moments on the set, slipping in some dark passages underneath simple pop tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good
Groovy guitarist Al lays down a tasty set of 60s spy and cop themes – all with a Leroy Holmes production style that's similar to other pop soundtrack work on United Artists.

Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A very groovy album by Laurindo Almeida – one of his best bossa cookers in a swinging 60s mode! The album features lots of great acoustic guitar from Laurindo, but spun over fuller arrangements by Lex De Azvedo, Clare Fischer, and Dick Grove – all of whom get that right sort of jaunty, ...

Command, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Very cool moog album with a Perry-Kingsley feel. That is, it's got sort of a sharp electronic sound, but with grooviness underneath that keeps the whole thing going along at a jaunty pace. At times, the electronic sounds will break down into a bunch of noise, and then jump into a swingin' poppy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Baroque Inevitable
Columbia, 1966. Very Good
One of our favorite entries into the strange 60s genre of baroque pop – arranged and produced with very hip touches from the great John Simon! Many of the numbers here are familiar 60s pop tunes – but they're redone in an instrumental way using electric harpsichord, woodwinds, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

A great live set recorded in 1962 with some of Cal's best players in the group – pianist Lonnie Hewitt and drummer John Rae, joined by bassist Freddie Schreiber.
