Strings Aflame

LP (Item 6819) RCA, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+

A soaring set of fire from the legendary Juan Garcia Esquivel – a record with the promised strings in the title, but used in all the weird and wonderful ways that make Esquivel so great! Some of the strings are electric guitar lines, there's some great echoey piano, gongs and percussion, and lots more too – on titles that include "Foolin Around", "Guadalajara", "Sun Valley Ski Run", "Turkish March", "Andalusian Sky", "Misirlou", and "Gypsy Lament".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Living Stereo pressing with deep groove! Cover has some very light wear in one corner, but is great overall.)

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.

Holy cow! A rare early Esquivel album, recorded in Mexico in the years before he came to the US! The record shows Esquivel's roots in the post-swing era, leading a big band that runs through everything from moody standards to souped up "rock & roll" material. The setting appears to ...

RCA, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A collaboration with poet John Laws – a project that almost recalls some of the Rod McKuen/Anita Kerr projects of the late 60s, but which has a deeper, more sophisticated Mancini feel!

Mancini does a bunch of 70's TV themes, like "Battlestar Galactica", "Fantasy Island", "Three's Company", "Heaven Can Wait", "Star Trek" and more, plus believe it or not "NBC Nightly News". Not as groovy as his cop show album, but still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Voices of Walter Schumann

Exploring the Unknown
RCA, 1955. Very Good
One of the postwar space-age classics! The normally-sleepy chorus of Walter Schumann is used to create the backdrop for a narrative of space flight – read by Paul Frees, and involving the takeoff of a rocket from the Pacific, soaring into space, past the moon, and arriving on Venus. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

A great version of the Hair soundtrack – with instrumentation that's way groovier than any of Don Kirshner's throwaway pop work from later years!
