LP, Vinyl record album

(€10.61 || £9.22 || ¥1332) (approx.)

McCallum's third album for Capitol – and like the first, a genius batch of instrumental tunes that's graced with the talents of HB Barnum and David Axelrod! As beathead revivalists have shown, the album would be nothing without that pair, especially Axelrod – and McCallum's really just the figurehead to sell a cool batch of 60s instrumental easy tunes with some odd experimental moments. These include Barnum's eerie "House Of Mirrors" tune and Axelrod's more sedate groovy number "On A Weekend". Other trakcs include "Cherish", "A Man & A Woman", "Love Is A Hurtin Thing", and "I Can't Control Myself".  © 1996-2017, 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.

Sacred Idol
Capitol, 1960. Very Good-
A real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jewels Of The Sea
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good-
One of the rarest Les Baxter albums – and one of the best! The theme is undersea exotic – and Les uses a swirling mix of strings, piano, organ, flute, and electronics to create a haunting sound that makes you feel like you've discovered some hidden grotto under the sea, filled with ...

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good-
Dreamy work from Les Baxter – featuring his chorus and orchestra over string-heavy arrangements that match the midnight sea setting on the cover. The work's a lot more flowery than his exotic recordings for Capitol – but it's got an insanity that we find quite appealing, especially in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+
The notes say that the album is "the rare plum of authenticity". We don't know if we'd go that far, but we can tell you that the record features Yma performing songs of the legendary Jivaro headhunters! Supposedly, Yma learned them in her "South American jungle-home", but we ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tartaglian Theorem
Capitol, 1968. Very Good
Sweet and dreamy instrumental pop from John Andrews Tartaglia – an arranger we only know from a few late 60s sides at Capitol Records – all of which are pretty great! Tartaglia's got a style that's still heavy in mainstream 60s easy modes, but borrows a fair bit from the generation of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Guitar From Ipanema
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, ...

Music For Lovers Only
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Music for lovers – and some languid lovers at that – thanks to some perfect mellow moods set by Jackie Gleason! The set's one of Jackie's undisputed classics for Capitol Records in the 50s – perfect sounds to woo a winsome lass, made slightly sexier by some great trumpet solos by ... 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
