Moonflowers & Mini Skirts

CD (Item 642996) Marina (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock


(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Wonderful stuff! As you've probably noticed in our soundtrack section, we loooove Peter Thomas, the groovy German composer/bandleader who gave the world the cool soundtracks to Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille) and the Jerry Cotton films. Now the same folks who put together the cool Motor Music compilations have done this one of Thomas' other work from the late 60s and early 70s, and it's a real doozy! The sound's a mix of space age crime, groovy bossa tunes, cool now sound gems, and wild soundtrack-y material. Titles include "Uhr 20", "Opium", "Multi-Kolored Mini-Skirts", "Rockin' Computer", "Milky Way", "Meeting Polermo", "Flash Point", "Moonflower Q 70" and "Black Power", which has vocals by a very young Donna Summer! The sound is amazing, and the CD's a real treat to any fan of groovy Euro stuff from the late 60s! (Out of print.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Capitol (UK), 1957/1960. Used
Two of Dean Martin's greatest early albums for Capitol on one CD! Dino was always more of a singles artist than an LP artist – but these two albums are some of his few fully-conceived albums, much more in the Sinatra 50s mode than some of the other "hits plus filler" or "songs ... CD
Columbia Years
Koch, 1996. Used
Great stuff! The Hi-Lo's swinging groovy jazz vocals can't be beat, and this sharp 16 track set of selections from their rare Columbia albums is one of the best ways to get into the group. Some of the tracks are a little bit goofy, but even when they're goofin' around, the group still manages to ... CD

CBS/Sony (Japan), 1957. Used
Gimmicky title, but some of Doris Day's best album work of the 50s! Titles include "Soft As The Starlight", "Close Your Eyes", "You Do Something To Me", and "Dream A Little Dream Of Me". CD

Liberty/Vocalion (UK), 1963/1964. Used
A great illustration of the way that Martin Denny expanded his groove in the 60s – on some sweetly inventive records like this! On Latin Village, Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely ... CD
Liberty/Vocalion (UK), 1962/1964. Used
Back to back gems from Martin Denny – two albums on a single CD! Taste Of Honey is 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 ... CD
Space Age Soul
Sequel (UK), 1966. Used
Very groovy compilation of John Schroeder's cool Now Sound stuff from the late 60's. Recorded in the UK, with a sound that's surprisingly funky (in the Sound Gallery sort of way) this is an excellent batch of 21 tracks that features some very groovy sounds throughout, including originals like ...

A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s. Used
Genius, pure genius – a wonderful collection of 22 rare numbers by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – all recorded during the group's years at A&M Records, and including a number of previously unreleased tunes! The sound here is completely sublime – way more than just the ... CD
Edison/Modern Harmonic, 1958. Used
A fantastic bit exotica from Tak Shindo – quite rootsy at times, in a way that really lives up to the cover – and which makes the whole thing a lot more striking than Shindo's other big album on Capitol at the time! The instrumentation is filled with heavy percussion and rhythms, often ... CD

Rhino, Early 60s. Used
The majority of this release was taken from Sonny Lesters "Ann Corio Presents How To Strip For Your Husband Vols 1 & 2 – Music To Make Marriage Merrier", plus David Rose's "the Stripper", Bobby Summers' "Pad", and the Genteels "Take It Off". CD
Monstrous Movie Music, 1961. Used
Herman Stein might not be one of the heavyweights of Hollywood scoring, but he really knocks it out of the park for his music to The Intruder – a lively dramatic soundtrack with some nice currents of jazz in the mix! The Intruder score is somewhere in territory explored by folks like Elmer ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1969. Used
A great one from Gianni Marchetti – the Italian composer we know best for his work on The Wild Eye, but who sounds equally great on this set too! The best tracks have a heavy rhythm at the bottom – not really funky, but kind of mod, and a bit more off-kilter on the slower numbers ... CD
