LP, Vinyl record album

(€14.28 || £12.59 || ¥1894) (approx.)

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. Behind them, the orchestra swings in a tight rocket-fueled way, soaring and dipping to match the oddly arranged piano lines. Titles include "Playfully", "That Old Black Magic", "Speak Low", "It Had To Be You", and "Night & Day". Plus, the cover's got a groovily attired model, hanging out in a very green lunar scene!

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.

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.

RCA, 1961. Very Good
An incredible record of over the top arrangements – all produced with the kind of all-around sound that made Esquivel's best records so great! Juan Garcia's really got his trademark sound in place by the time of this set – and the album's got plenty of "wah wah" and "doo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strings Aflame
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Despite the "strings" in the title, this one actually swings quite well, and has a bit of an exotic gypsy flavor to it, augmented by cool spacey production that makes the strings hum with a strange other-worldly tonality. The set's filled with the usual crazy Esquivel arrangements, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Rock
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
Claus Ogerman may hail from Germany, but he's got a heck of a way with a New York Latin groove! The album's a great blend of styles all handled perfectly – a mode that mixes Latin soul with some of the groovier arrangements that were showing up on records at Verve during the same period. ...

Big Screen Little Screen
RCA, 1971. Near Mint-
Henry Mancini balances things out between the big screen of the cinema and the little screen of the TV – both showcases for his famous work over the years! Many of the numbers here aren't Mancini originals, but hits of the day, redone by Hank in a variety of modes – some a bit funky, ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
Groovy stuff! After paying tribute to Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan on other LPs, Hugo Montenegro turns his talents to the groovy compositions of Elton John in this nice album of moogy instrumentals. There's lots of nice electric keyboards, Arp, synth, and electric piano, and the rest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Skin Tight
RCA, 1960. Very Good
Pretty skin tight stuff – as Marty and crew play more bongos than you'd ever hear in a beatnik hoedown! The set's a very percussive one, and is one of Gold's better outings on RCA – thanks to the tightly stretched skins of the bongo. Gold arranged all tunes, and some of them are bongo- ...

Others By Brothers
RCA, 1975. Very Good
Sweet 70s funk from Hugo Montenegro – an artist who really developed a great ear for electric styles by this point in his career! The album's very heavy on Arp – and includes variations on the instrument in many formats – all set to funky jazz arrangements that follow from Hugo's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Class Of 71
RCA, 1971. Sealed
Class Of 71 has Floyd Cramer picking up just a bit of rock in his choice of songs – not underground psych, but a range of material from folks like James Taylor, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Brewer & Shipley – mixed in with the sort of tunes you'd be more likely to find on ...
