Round The World With Les Baxter

LP (Item 5968) Capitol, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

In the years before he hit big with Exotica, Les Baxter had a minor chart instrumental with "The Poor People Of Paris", a dreamy romantic tune that was typical of the lush style he used in his earlier years. After the success of that one, Capitol built this whole album around world-wide themes – and also had Les doing a few nicer Latin-tinged numbers as part of the package. Not the classic Exotic stuff, but with a few nice moments. Tracks include "Japanese Parasols", "Venezuela", "Purple Islands", "Padam, Padam", "Romantic Rio", and "Buenos Aires".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original turquoise label pressing. Cover has light aging.)

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.

San Fernando Brass

New Brass Sound Of The Hits
Capitol, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Very sweet grooves – a set of mellow early 70s easy tunes, performed by a brass ensemble with nice electric bass backing!

Nelson Riddle

Tender Touch
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+

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!

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, ...

Complete Manhattan Tower
Capitol, 1956. Very Good+
A beautiful testament to the glory of New York in the postwar years – a concept album penned and conducted by Gordon Jenkins, as kind of a musical tribute to the city and its apartment culture!

Best Of Martin Denny
Liberty, Late 50s/Early 60s. 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!
