LP, Vinyl record album

(€4.42 || £3.84 || ¥554) (approx.)

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, and some birdcalls sung by the members of the group! The set's a mix of strange songs from strange sources, all given the sublime Denny twist – and titles include "Singing Bamboos", "Escales", "August Bells", "Ebb Tide", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Soshu Night Serenade". (Original turquoise label pressing with deep groove. Cover has half split seams and small stains on back.)  © 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.

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

... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1960. Very Good
One of the maestro's greatest! From the instruments spiraling off to infinity on the cover, to the tracks played in the unique crazy Esquivel "wah wah" style, the album stands as one of the finest examples of (and obstacle courses for) modern high fidelity – a really dynamic set of ...

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

A groovy one from the always-great Sid Bass – a set that's filled with lots of percussion and bells! LP, Vinyl record album
Project 3, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Sweet instrumental easy tunes – the guitar of Tony Mottola in the lead, and featuring a host of great Italian compositions from the 60s. There's not as many totally groovy numbers as you might expect – but there's a few great ones on the record that dance out nicely, earning the "t ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1958. Very Good
One of the most memorable Esquivel albums, and perhaps the first record that really let him hit his fantastic mix of off-beat orchestrations and spacey electronicized production! The arrangements are splendid, with echoey piano lines in the front that seem to trail off into the stratosphere. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Switched On Beatles
Mushroom, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1969. Near Mint-
Debut has Henry Mancini making his debut as a conductor of the Philadelphia Pops – a larger orchestra than you'll usually hear on most Manini albums, which allows Hank to really open up in some more sophisticated modes! The songs are mostly more serious Mancini compositions – with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Well Kept Secret
Polydor, 1975. Very Good+
One of the coolest records ever from James Last – a mid 70s American session, done with styles that are a fair bit different than his other work! Unlike the brassy, bouncing styles of Last's previous records, this one's nicely funky, soulful, and almost a bit laidback at times – filled ... LP, Vinyl record album
